   Oct-14-19 McShane vs Caruana, 2019 (replies)
luzhin: I think the cleanest win was 53.Nc1! Qb5 (what else?) 54.Rf4 and Black can resign.
   Oct-13-19 McShane vs B Adhiban, 2019 (replies)
luzhin: 19.e5!! and suddenly it all clicks.
   Oct-13-19 Ngoc Truongson Nguyen vs McShane, 2019 (replies)
luzhin: 21...f5 is one helluva move! Main idea: if 22.exf6 Bxf3 23.Qxf3 Rxf6 is killing
   Oct-11-19 McShane vs Lu Shanglei, 2019 (replies)
luzhin: Characteristically imaginative pawn sac by McShane (18.g4!?) leading to a fantastic positional squeeze. Black cracked with 32...b5? but it must have been hard to resist.
   Oct-09-19 G Botterill vs Tal, 1973 (replies)
luzhin: Botterill missed two great chances to become the first Welsh player to beat a world chess champion (ex in Tal's case)! First, the simple 29.Rb1! a5 30.Qxd4 and now the lethal threat of c3 seems to force the win of a piece. Then, on the last move of the time control --as so often the ...
   Oct-03-19 Radjabov vs Ding Liren, 2019 (replies)
luzhin: I liked Ding's last (desperate) trap with 45...Bg7. The natural looking 46.Kg6 actually loses to 46...Bf8!
   Sep-29-19 Radjabov vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2019 (replies)
luzhin: Maxime must regret not playing 6...Qxd1+! Sometimes it is better to be boring.
   Sep-28-19 Tal vs Simagin, 1963
luzhin: Tal would not have been Tal if he had missed Simagin's trick by playing 33.Rd8+? Kg7 34.Rxc8 after which Black has an amazing draw: 34...Ne2! 35.Rg8+ Kxg8 36.c8=Q+ Kg7 37.Qc7 Qg1+ 38.Kh3 Qh1+ 39.Qh2 Ng1+ 40.Kg3 Ne2+ 41.Kh3 Ng1+ and perpetual check!
   Sep-25-19 Yu Yangyi vs Vitiugov, 2019 (replies)
luzhin: Astonishing what exhaustion and tension in an Armageddon game does to even the strongest GMs. Yu's 9.Be4?? is just the start of the madness. And instead of 17...Nd7?? Vitiugov could have forced immediate resignation with 17...Qc5, as if 18.Ke3 Nc4+ wins the WQ.
   Sep-20-19 Ju Wenjun vs M Sebag, 2019
luzhin: Why not 21...Rxb7? Because of 22.axb6 axb6 23.Qxf8+! Kxf8 24.Nd7+! Rxd7 25.Ra8+ and mate next move. Or if in this line, 22...Rxb6, then 23.Qxf8+! Kxf8 24.Nd7+ Kg8 25.Re8 mate. An instructive back-rank mating combo.
