   Feb-08-16 Critter vs Shredder, 2014
 
luzhin: 27.Bc4!! is a helluva way for the Bishop to enter the game. Its purpose is to liberate the Re1's path to h1, viz: 27..Bxc4 28.Nxg6 fxg6 29.Rxg6+ Nxg6 30.Qxg6+ Kh8 31.Rh1 and mates.
 
   Feb-06-16 Carlsen vs Li Chao, 2015 (replies)
 
luzhin: 21.Bd1! was a great move. But believe it or not 21.Ba6!! is another way to win, as Black is forced to delay his attack by capturing the Bishop with 21...Rxa6 after which 22.Qh2 leads to a win. Or that's what my computer says, anyway...
 
   Feb-01-16 Adams vs A Giri, 2016
 
luzhin: He can play Bxe6 after 27.Be3, BOSTER... but it loses to 27.Qh4+ Kg7 28.Bxc5 Rxd8 29.Qxe7+ picking up the Rd8.
 
   Feb-01-16 G N Gopal vs D Howell, 2016
 
luzhin: A gorgeous Q sac, which Howell generously paid compliment to by letting the beautiful mate appear on the board. The point of the preparatory 44.h4!! is seen in the line 47...Kh6 48.Ng8 mate, as the escape to g5 is covered.
 
   Jan-27-16 Karjakin vs Adams, 2016 (replies)
 
luzhin: 32.Rxd2 Qc1+ 33.Rd1 Qxe3 mate would be the neat conclusion.
 
   Jan-24-16 Adams vs Eljanov, 2016 (replies)
 
luzhin: Astounding that Eljanov failed to convert this ending. For example 58...Rxh7 59.Rxh7 Kxc2 is resignable for White.
 
   Jan-24-16 Navara vs Caruana, 2016 (replies)
 
luzhin: The left-right combination of 50.a5 and 52.h5 is stunning: the latter stops Black playing Rg6 and thus enables the decisive march of the King to d6.
 
   Jan-19-16 Yifan Hou vs Navara, 2016 (replies)
 
luzhin: 34.Nc1!! with the victory-march d3-f4-g6 is fantastic. Bravo, Yifan!
 
   Jan-16-16 Ding Liren vs Adams, 2016 (replies)
 
luzhin: The end is spectacular. If Adams' 60...Re4 is answered by 61.Nxe4?? then it's stalemate. But 61.Rh8+! is the only move--if 61.Nxf7??? Rg4 checkmate!
 
   Jan-09-16 Ju Wenjun vs Short, 2016 (replies)
 
luzhin: 19.Qc3!! is a brilliant 'creeping' Queen move, which wins a piece by force. The main point is that after 19...Qxc3 20.bxc3 the Bg3 squewers the unprotected Knights and whichever one captures on b5 the response 21.c4 wins a steed.
