   Jul-23-14 D Howell vs S Williams, 2014 (replies)
 
luzhin: Quite an upset: but if Howell had found 32.Rh3! he was set to win although it is complicated. And later, instead of 35.Rxh7?, there was a draw to be had by 35.Rh3!! Bxh3 36.Kxh3 Ng3 37.Kg2 h5 38.Nd1 Be1 39.Nc3 Bf2 40,Nd1 --but this also is hard to see when short of time.
 
   Jul-23-14 S Williams vs A Hill, 2014
 
luzhin: Beautiful bishops! After 30...Kxh6 31.Qh2+ Kg7 32.Bxe5+ Rf6 33.Qh4 b3+ 34.Kf1 White will mate.
 
   Jul-23-14 Timman vs J O Fries Nielsen, 2014
 
luzhin: The hippo bites! Actually it's a mystery why Timman didn't play 26.Bxd4 Rxd4 27.exf6 which seems to win. Then Black missed the winning idea (Rd2!!) first time around when he played the irrelevant 30...Bxb2 after which 31.Qh2 holds. At the end, if 34.Ne4 Qh3! wraps up.
 
   Jul-22-14 D Andersen vs M Ly, 2014
 
luzhin: White's doubtless planned 19.Rag1 Qxh6 20.Rg8 mate fails to the fact that 19...Qxh6 is CHECK. Oops.
 
   Jul-22-14 Yifan Hou vs R Wojtaszek, 2014
 
luzhin: It seems that the straightforward 21.d4! would have been the best (but 21.Qa4 was also very strong, of course).
 
   Jul-21-14 Van Wely vs E L'Ami, 2014 (replies)
 
luzhin: That's a good point, siggemannen: I suppose the best would be (after 11...Nd4) 12.Nxd4 Qxg5 13.Nf3 Qd8 14.Qxe5 Ba7 15.Rae1 when Black's position looks pretty terrible....
 
   Jul-20-14 I Nepomniachtchi vs D Vocaturo, 2014 (replies)
 
luzhin: 82...Ng7 is a clever finish: the threat of either Nf5 or Nh5 is decisive.
 
   Jul-19-14 Caruana vs Adams, 2014 (replies)
 
luzhin: Ulhumbrus, 41.Rxb4?? loses the Ne7 to 41...Rd4+ snd 42...Re4+
 
   Jul-16-14 B Bok vs W Spoelman, 2014
 
luzhin: Yes, a great brilliancy, not least because 26.Bd4! is not just the only winning move, but the only move not to lose. As for 24.Qe6!!, it's the sort of move that could make us fall in love with chess all over again.
 
   Jul-15-14 Harikrishna vs A Giri, 2014 (replies)
 
luzhin: Although Black was doing OK until 38...Rc8?? (instead of Rg5) suicidally abandoning the g-file.
