   Apr-24-17 Kramnik vs Harikrishna, 2017 (replies)
luzhin: Perhaps the most artistic ending to this masterpiece would have been 40...Qg4 41.Be7+!! Rxe7 42.Qf6+ Bf7 43.Qxe7+ Kxe7 44.Bf5+. Kramnik is a true artist of the chessboard.
   Apr-24-17 Eljanov vs Mamedyarov, 2017 (replies)
luzhin: There is no mate, but I suspect Elyanov thought there would be, which perhaps explains why he passed up 44.e7.
   Apr-09-17 A Virkud vs S Foisor, 2017 (replies)
luzhin: How nice to win the championship with a Queen sacrifice. Though the killer was 25...Rf6!
   Apr-08-17 J Xiong vs W So, 2017 (replies)
luzhin: Note that if So had played 30...exd4?? then Xiong wins with 31.c7!
   Apr-04-17 V Abbasov vs A Korobov, 2017 (replies)
luzhin: Staggering upset: 2211 player beats 2695! But 17...Bxh4 was ludicrously risky-- and after the obvious sac Black is just lost.
   Mar-08-17 I Kovalenko vs Sveshnikov, 2017 (replies)
luzhin: Not bad for a 67 year old!
   Feb-25-17 R Buhmann vs N Vitiugov, 2017 (replies)
luzhin: 29...Re1+!! is very neat.
   Feb-25-17 D Harika vs Tan Zhongyi, 2017 (replies)
luzhin: Harika's 12.Qh4!! is devastating, as after 12...hxg5 13.Nxg5 Bxd4+ 14.Kh1 Kg7 15.Qh7+ Kf6 16.Nxf7 the attack is decisive. Tan had to play 11...Re8 and if then 12.Qh4 Black would have had reasonable chances to defend with 12...Be6!
   Feb-23-17 Borna Derakhshani vs Huzman, 2017
luzhin: It is a rule of the Iranian authorities that their sportsmen must not engage in competition against Israelis.It is nothing to do with the wishes of the individual Iranian competitors. They, after all, are the only ones who suffer bad consequences as a result of the so-called ...
   Feb-16-17 Shiqun Ni vs V Gunina, 2017 (replies)
luzhin: Agreed: it's known that 3...Nf6 is the better chance for dynamic counterplay. But Gunina's main defence against 1.e4 is the Caro-Kann. Players often try the Sicilian in a must-win situation as Black (Caruana in the last round of the 2016 candidates against Karjakin, Karpov in the ...
