   Apr-23-14 R Wojtaszek vs E Safarli, 2014
luzhin: 36...Qc7 37.Qe8+! does the trick. A nice demonstration of how opposite colored Bishops are drawish in endings, but favor the attacking side in the middle-game.
   Apr-22-14 Adams vs Wan Yunguo, 2013
luzhin: Yes, and it could have the heading "Wake me up wan yun guo guo."
   Apr-22-14 Yifan Hou vs Kosteniuk, 2014
luzhin: What an extraordinary comment. Hou was NOT 'playing only for a draw': on the contrary it is she who should be praised for avoiding a 3x repetition by playing 39.Rb2 instead of 39.Rd1. As for her choice of opening, there is nothing especially drawish about the KIA.
   Apr-21-14 J P Wallace vs R Svane, 2014
luzhin: The weight of wood down the e-line makes it difficult to envisage that after 31...Nxf6 the e-pawn is pinned. If the Black Knight had been on g4 (for example) then I suspect the trick would have been spotted immediately.
   Apr-21-14 T Galinsky vs N Getz, 2014
luzhin: My dear chap, after 45...Ng7 46.Qg5 is mate on the move.
   Apr-21-14 R Wojtaszek vs Eljanov, 2014 (replies)
luzhin: Superb demonstration of an active King in R-ending.
   Apr-18-14 F Lillevold vs F Elsness, 2014 (replies)
luzhin: 29.hxg6?? Qh4+ is a draw. Unfortunately for Black, his opponent has a better idea...
   Apr-18-14 Kosteniuk vs Lahno, 2014
luzhin: Amazing game. Black had to allow the perpetual, because if 21...Bd7?? 22.Qxd7+! wins.
   Apr-18-14 S Mihajlov vs L E Johannessen, 2014
luzhin: I think after your good idea 26.h4! then 26...Bb7 27.h5 Kh6 and the position may be in dynamic equality. But a 2530 player should be expected to play on in such circumstances against a 2200 one.
   Apr-18-14 B Bok vs G Gajewski, 2014
luzhin: 30.Nf6+!! sets up a delightful sequence of unacceptable Q sacrifices.
