   Jul-17-18 A Giri vs V Kovalev, 2018 (replies)
luzhin: The point is that the Qd2 stops Black's Qe3+. But on doesn't.
   Jul-11-18 R Praggnanandhaa vs W So, 2018 (replies)
luzhin: Pragg must be kicking himself for missing 8.Bxf7+! which wins: e.g 8.Bxf7+ Kxf7 9.Ng5+ Kg8 10.Ne6 Qe8 11.Nc7 Qd8 12.Nxa8 and because of the inclusion of the moves 7.a5 a6 the WN escapes via b6.
   Jul-05-18 Valery Sviridov vs Motylev, 2018 (replies)
luzhin: Neat: 24.Bxe2 Rxe2+ 25.Kg1 Rg2+ 26.Kf1 Rf2+ 27.Ke1 Re2 mate.
   Jun-16-18 M Vachier-Lagrave vs Karjakin, 2018 (replies)
luzhin: Sad: after 50...Bc6 Black was if anything, better. But in playing 50...c3?? he missed that after 51.d7 the intended 51...Ke7 loses to 52.f6+!
   May-03-18 V S Popov vs K Alekseenko, 2018
luzhin: No defence to 33.Qh6+! Bxh6 34.Rh7 mate.
   May-03-18 V Skatchkov vs P Maletin, 2018
luzhin: Fabulous double piece sac (20...Ne5+ and 21...Bxh3) If 22.gxh3 Qf2+ 23.Kg4 Bxe5 forces mate rapidly. Note also if 22.Bd3 Bg4+ 23.Kg4 Bh4 also forces mate. Bravo!
   Apr-24-18 E Delmar vs Gunsberg, 1889
luzhin: This is ridiculous. 10.Nxe5 wins a piece (if 10...Bxd1 11.Nc6+)
   Apr-04-18 Caruana vs Naiditsch, 2018 (replies)
luzhin: Caruana had to be precise right to the very end. 41.Qe5 looks like the quickest win--until you see Naiditsch's last ditch swindle 41...Qxf2+ 42.Kxf2 Nd3+ and Black wins!
   Apr-03-18 G Meier vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
luzhin: Note that White's King could not exit stage left: if 36.Kf1 Qf3+ 37.Ke1 Bb4 checkmate!
   Mar-28-18 E Alekseev vs R Mamedov, 2018
luzhin: The position after White's (fatal) 36th move makes a nice puzzle. Of course, after 37.gxh3 Bh2+! leads to mate in three more moves.
