   May-22-21 Cochrane vs Mohishunder, 1852 (replies)
 
luzhin: On move 29, White has a choice of 8 (!) discovered checks with his Knight, but all let Black escape and win with his three extra pieces. Except for 29.Ng5+! Fantastic (if unsound) sacrificial attack starting on move 10.
 
   Feb-27-21 Carlsen vs E Shaposhnikov, 2004
 
luzhin: Amazing game for a 13 year old. I wonder what happened to him?
 
   Jan-18-21 A Donchenko vs Caruana, 2021 (replies)
 
luzhin: 26...Ba3!! is the killer. Point is if 27.bxa3 b2+ 28.Kc2 Qb3+ 29.Kd2 c3+
 
   Aug-25-20 V Gazik vs Mamedyarov, 2020 (replies)
 
luzhin: 23...Rd2!! -- a Mamedyarov special.
 
   Aug-25-20 D Howell vs Nassim Zrikem, 2020 (replies)
 
luzhin: Amazing win by a player outrated by 850 Elo points (!). I would imagine that in other circumstances Howell would have played 26.Qxc6 and White will get a perpetual, checking on g6 and h6. It's a shame, but when an 1870 player beats a top ranked GM online, there will always be ...
 
   Aug-25-20 Adams vs B Amin, 2020
 
luzhin: I would have tried 64...Bh7+ in the admittedly faint hope of 65.Bxh7 stalemate!
 
   Aug-18-20 C C Rios vs Adams, 2020
 
luzhin: White had earlier been winning against his illustrious opponent, but first 33...Nxf2! gave enough counterplay for a draw and then 39.a4? Rf5!! turned the tables completely.
 
   Aug-18-20 D Dvirnyy vs Shirov, 2020 (replies)
 
luzhin: A Shirov masterpiece. If White accepts the initial Q offer with 24.Qxg4 then the main line is 24...Nxd2+ 25.Ka1 b3 26.Bb1 Ra4+ 27.Na2 bxa2 28.Bxa2 Nc5!! with the point that after 29.dxc5 Rxc5 there is no good defence to 30...Rxa2+ and Rxa5 and mate, as moving the b-pawn allows Bf6 ...
 
   Jul-29-20 Adams vs R Edouard, 2020
 
luzhin: 24.Bb6 would have been an elegant finish.
 
   Jul-12-20 Chandler vs C Crouch, 1998
 
luzhin: 45. Nb6 checkmate!
