   Nov-18-14 S Bogdanovich vs A Kovchan, 2014 (replies)
 
luzhin: Gorgeous combination: after 32.Rxa2 Rxe1+ 33 Rxe1 Bd3+ 34.Rc2 Bxc2+ forces mate. If White had played 31.Rxd5 Rxa2! is immediately decisive.
 
   Nov-15-14 Svidler vs M Matlakov, 2014
 
luzhin: Hugely entertaining from first to last, although Black had chances to win, such as 36...f5!! with the idea 37.gxf5 Rxd4 38.exd4 Qg8+
 
   Nov-14-14 Leko vs Svidler, 2014
 
luzhin: 22...gxf5!! turns the tables completely, inaugurating an unstoppable central pawn-roller
 
   Nov-14-14 Kramnik vs Kosteniuk, 2014 (replies)
 
luzhin: You might say that: look at the youtube of him storming off after losing a blitz game to Zsofia Polgar in 2002 --now there's someone who REALLY couldn't handle being beaten by a female.
 
   Nov-08-14 S Fedorchuk vs S Ovsejevitsch, 2001
 
luzhin: Why not 40..Nd8? Because 41.Nxb7! Nxb7 42.a6 and the a-pawn queeens.
 
   Nov-02-14 Jobava vs Mamedyarov, 2014 (replies)
 
luzhin: Wolfgang Heidenfeld long ago wrote a book called 'Draw!' , a collection of fabulous games ending with honors even. This superb slugfest is in that tradition-- and should find itself in a future such anthology.
 
   Nov-01-14 A Rodriguez Vila vs Carlsen, 2014
 
luzhin: Perhaps he thought that the chance of the world champion failing to spot 22...axb6 was precisely nil.
 
   Oct-29-14 Gelfand vs Jobava, 2014 (replies)
 
luzhin: 30...Bxc4! is a brutal conclusion. Obviously if 31.Bxc4 Re1+ 32.Nxe1 Qxe1+ 33.Kc2 Ne3+ wins the Queen. Even prettier is 31.Rd2 Bxb3 32.axb3 Re1+ 33.Nxe1 Qxe1+ 34.Rd1 Qxd1+ 35.Kxd1 Ne3+ and Black ends up with two knights against one!
 
   Oct-25-14 Carls vs Vidmar, 1914
 
luzhin: The tournament was abandoned, unfinished.
 
   Oct-19-14 A Indjic vs Lu Shanglei, 2014 (replies)
 
luzhin: Fantastic play from a very unpromising opening. Indjic had to try 25.Qe3 when after ...Nf1 26.Bxf1 Re4 27.Qxe4 dxe4 28.g3 White is still in the game thanks to the power of his N on e5. After 25.b3?? Black's attack is merciless.
