   Jun-17-20 N Huschenbeth vs M Bartel, 2019
luzhin: 29...Nh4!! is the killer, and a beautiful echo of the earlier 19...Nh3+!
   Jun-05-20 Shreyas Royal vs A Zapolskis, 2019
luzhin: Impressive victory by a ten year old against an IM. Black should have played 33...Nc2, which rounds up one of White's Rooks. But a lovely sustained attack, nonetheless.
   Jun-03-20 D Dubov vs Nakamura, 2020 (replies)
luzhin: That should be 14...Ne7, not 14...Nxe7.
   May-30-20 A Firouzja vs A Giri, 2020
luzhin: After 26...Rf8 Black is better. But 26...Re8?? allows Firouzja to show his little trick...
   May-30-20 M Vachier-Lagrave vs Caruana, 2020 (replies)
luzhin: Most unusual self-trapping of the Q. 19.Rd2?? is a weird looking move anyway.
   May-17-20 J Xiong vs Mamedyarov, 2020
luzhin: 25...Bc2!! is a classic tactic, based on a back rank weakness. If 26.Rxc2 Rxd4! or if 26.Rf1 Rxd4 27.Rxc2 Kxg7 and Black wins a piece.
   May-12-20 I Lyskov vs G Borisenko, 1951
luzhin: 39...Rd8!! only winning move.
   May-05-20 V Artemiev vs Aronian, 2020
luzhin: Doubtless Aronian had seen 32.Rd5! since after Bxd5 33.Qxg5+ Kf8 34.cxd5 Re7 the obvious 35.Qf6 Ke8 gives Black good chances to defend. But Aronian must have missed the brilliant follow-up 35.e5!! when 35...dxe5 36. dxe6 or 35...exd5 36.e6 both win. Great game.
   May-02-20 Ding Liren vs Carlsen, 2020 (replies)
luzhin: 41.Nxe6? was the fatal error. After 41.exd6 Ding still had chances. But both players were down to less than a minute...
   May-02-20 Carlsen vs Ding Liren, 2020 (replies)
luzhin: 31...Qe7! and if 32.Qxd5 Qe2! seems to hold the draw. Therefore Magnus should have played 31.Qa8+ since after Kf7 32.Bxf5 Qe7 33.Qxd5 is CHECK!
