   luzhin has kibitzed 1989 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Mar-04-15 G Gajewski vs I Iljiushenok, 2015 (replies)
luzhin: Yes, it looked as though it didn't work because of the Ra3-Rg3+ manoeuvre, but that is foiled by 43...e5+!
   Mar-04-15 Navara vs R Kempinski, 2015 (replies)
luzhin: 30.Nd8! is a wonderful move. Note how in the final position, it prevents Black's Queen from checking on the a8-h1 diagonal.
   Mar-01-15 A Sarana vs Kiril Georgiev, 2015 (replies)
luzhin: On move 77. Black had more than one way to preserve equality (such as 77...Nc3+). Only 77...Nxe3 lost on the spot to 78.Qd3!
   Mar-01-15 A Volokitin vs D Vocaturo, 2015 (replies)
luzhin: The beautiful point is that after 37.Nxg8 whichever White Knight is captured, the other one wins the Bishop with 38.Ne7+!
   Feb-27-15 O Reshef vs Motylev, 2015
luzhin: Being in a lost position might also have had something to do with it.
   Feb-26-15 V Mikhalevski vs Itay Westreich, 2015 (replies)
luzhin: I don't think I've ever seen someone lose to a player rated as many as 630 Elo points lower. Amazing upset by the 17 year old Israeli kid--with 35...Rf2+! the coup de grace.
   Feb-26-15 A Moiseenko vs Huzman, 2015
luzhin: Black must have felt he was doing fine until the terrible shock of 32.Rxg5+!! The point is that after 32...hxg5 33.h6+ wins the Queen.
   Feb-22-15 Grischuk vs Mamedyarov, 2015 (replies)
luzhin: Actually White was doing well before the appalling 17.Ra5?? clearly missing the force of 17...Qh6! After 17.dxe5 the two Bishops in such an open position are certainly worth the pawn.
   Feb-21-15 Kasimdzhanov vs Svidler, 2015 (replies)
luzhin: Kazimdzhanov has nerve! The move 7.f4 is Svidler's own invention, first played against Gelfand in the 2013 London candidates tournament.
   Feb-15-15 Anand vs Aronian, 2015 (replies)
luzhin: Aronian gets hit by some brilliant opening preparation Anand must have had prepared for Carlsen in the recent wc match. After Aronian missed the only chance for defence 20...Ra5, Anand's piece sac was rapidly vindicated. The star move is 19.d7!
