   Apr-25-15 Adams vs A Giri, 2015 (replies)
luzhin: 14...h6? is not the way to play such positions, as Adams demonstrates. The correct plan is to play 14...Bc8, giving Black's Nf6 the square d7 after White plays 15.g5. This was what Kasparov did in the epic 24th game of his 1985 match against Karpov. That reached an identical position
   Apr-15-15 D Howell vs G Guseinov, 2015
luzhin: Yes, the problem is that when the game is over, the arbiters place the White king on e4 and the Black king on e5. But I was watching the game live online, and it registered 44.Kd6 (the completely obvious winning move) before it changed to Ke4 -- as a result of the arbiter's action as
   Apr-14-15 A Gupta vs E Kanter, 2015
luzhin: Remarkable game. Black should have played 42...d3! after which his Q+N+QP do indeed beat White's offside double Queens. But in the game, White could have won with the bold 44.Kxd3, though it takes time.
   Apr-14-15 V Fedoseev vs D Howell, 2015 (replies)
luzhin: I wonder if the two young GMs realised that up until 12...Nf8 they were following Alekhine-Lasker New York 1924? Anyway, Lasker would have admired the way Fedoseev salvaged a draw from a dire position and thus managed to tie for first with his opponent.
   Apr-13-15 N Grandelius vs G Nigalidze, 2015 (replies)
luzhin: Hardly: Tigran Petrosian, the cheating victim, has a higher ELO rating than Nils Grandelius.
   Apr-12-15 D Vocaturo vs A Mokal, 2015
luzhin: What a result by the young Indian woman, beating a GM 500 Elo points higher. Vocaturo certainly helped however, first missing a win with 25.Rxh6+! gxh6 26.Nf6 Qg7 27.Rg3 and then allowing a lethal pin with 32.Kh2??
   Apr-01-15 C Holt vs Nakamura, 2015 (replies)
luzhin: The exquisite point that 27 Nh4 is no defence as 27...Qg2+ 28.Nxg2 Nf3 is mate.
   Mar-19-15 H Hauksdottir vs H Carlsen, 2015
luzhin: Not that great: White could have won trivially either with 39.Qh3, or next move with 40.Rf2. And after 45.Qa7 the best that H Carlsen could have hoped for was a draw.
   Mar-17-15 Stefansson vs Granda Zuniga, 2015
luzhin: This is, of course, the variation Kasparov played in the sensational final game of his 1997 match v Deep Blue: he tried 8...Qe7 before capturing on e6 and...we all know what happened next.
   Mar-15-15 H Carlsen vs D Ragnarsson, 2015
luzhin: Magnus's dad can play!
