   Aug-04-18 Kasparov vs Short, 1993
 
Ulhumbrus: 20 Ba2 makes 20...f5 easier for Black as on 21 exf5 Nxf5 White has lost the option of 22 Bxf5
 
   Aug-04-18 Kasparov vs Short, 1993
 
Ulhumbrus: < RookFile: < Uhlhumbrus: 21...g5 disturbs the King side pawns. An alternative is 21...Ne7 with the plan of ...c6, ...Nc7 and ...Be6 to exchange White's King's Bishop.> 21....Ne7 22. h6 and black can resign.> If the move 21 Nd5 transforms the move h6 into a threat one ...

Ulhumbrus: If after 13 Nh4 Black has no good way to stop 14 Ng6 gaining the bishop pair this suggests that the move 13 Nh4 itself counts as a threat after 12 Ba2. One example of an earlier alternative is 11...d5 eg 11...d5 12 ed Nxd5 13 d4 Nf4 14 Nxe5 Nxe5 15 Rxe5 Rxe5 16 dxe5 Nd3
 
   Aug-04-18 Kasparov vs Short, 1993
 
Ulhumbrus: After 12...Qc8 White's KB ties a piece of much greater value- Black's queen - to the defence of the a6 pawn for a long time. This suggests that 12...Bxc4 is necessary.
 
   Aug-01-18 Carlsen vs Svidler, 2018 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: < An Englishman: Good Morning: With all due respect to everyone, I would suggest that such blunders might be typical of all Super-GMs because they occur between moves 50-59. My apologies for continuously bringing up the "Fatigue Fifties," but it honestly seems that something ...
 
   Jul-29-18 Petrosian vs Fischer, 1971
 
Ulhumbrus: The move 18 f4 instead of 18 Rad1 suggests poor playing form. According to Korchnoi Petrosian did not like to play every day and was unable to play every day, whereas Fischer had the ability to keep his opponent engaged in a constant battle. Petrosian was exhausted by having to ...
 
   Jul-29-18 Svidler vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2018 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: The idea behind 10 h4 may be that with the N on e6 obstructing the e pawn the way left to develop Black's bishop is ...g6 and that gives the h pawn a target. However the advance h5 is not much of a threat unless White can gain something either from opening the h file or from h6. ...
 
   Jul-28-18 N Georgiadis vs Mamedyarov, 2018 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: 33 Qh4 allows the potential fork ...Nc2. Although the queen moves with tempo by attacking the rook the rook also moves with tempo by pinning indirectly the g pawn so that now Black has a double threat of ...Nc2 and ...gxf3
 
   Jul-26-18 N Georgiadis vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: The pawn sacrifice 43...Rc6! takes advantage of the fact that after 44 Rxd4 Rh6 it will take White time to free White's rook, time which the black rook can use to win White's f pawn - just to begin with
 
   Jul-25-18 Mamedyarov vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2018 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: Mamedyarov's success with 7 g4 suggests that if the opponent is suffering the effects of a loss one can get promising results with eccentric play.
