   Aug-16-17 Anand vs Kasparov, 2017
 
Ulhumbrus: If 27 Qxc5 leads to a draw one alternative which the computer gives is 27 f3.
 
   Aug-12-17 M Vachier-Lagrave vs I Nepomniachtchi, 2017 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: In the games Milner-Barry vs Petrosian, 1954 and Averbakh vs Petrosian, 1959 White played the moves Bg5 and Bxf6 and went on to lose. This suggests the question of what the differences are between this game and those games.
 
   Aug-12-17 W So vs Anand, 2017 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: If Anand wanted to play to win against the classical variation of the Nimzoindian defence and if White could draw the lines after ...c5 if he prepared them well enough one alternative was the Zurich variation 4...Nc6 keeping winning chances perhaps comparable to those in a Giuoco ...
 
   Aug-12-17 Carlsen vs Aronian, 2017 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: It may be that after 15...Nh5 followed by ...Nf4 ( otherwise why did Black play his queen to g6?) Black has at least a draw. If so, Aronian may have avoided it because he thought that Carlsen would be able to defend it and gain a draw. If this is so it suggests that Aronian tried ...
 
   Aug-11-17 I Nepomniachtchi vs Carlsen, 2017 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: Up to move seven the opening seems similar to that in the game Petrosian vs Botvinnik, 1963 with the difference that Carlsen has developed his king's knight on f6 instead of on e7. If in reply to 8 Bf4 8...Nh5 is a good move, one alternative to 8 Bf4 is 8 0-0. Otherwise one ...
 
   Aug-11-17 Caruana vs Nakamura, 2017 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: 5 h3 moves a pawn in the opening. It may make it easier for Black to equalize, if it does not actually pass the opening advantage to Black, but if so, Black has to find a way to benefit from the tempo. Nakamura finds an interesting way to make use of the tempo. He attacks White's ...
 
   Aug-11-17 Aronian vs Svidler, 2017 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: If 9...Bf5 can be answered with 10 Qb3, two alternatives are 9...0-0 at once and 9...e5 threatening 10...e4
 
   Aug-11-17 Karjakin vs W So, 2017 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: The exchange 46...Nxc5 gives White a dangerous passed c pawn which ends up costing Black his other knight and eventually the game
 
   Aug-10-17 Nakamura vs Aronian, 2017 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: One commentator indicated that 17 c4? instead of 17 Bb2! first was premature because it led to Black's being able to establish a knight on d4. Such a difference can decide whether it is White who goes on to win or whether it is Black who goes on to win
 
   Aug-10-17 Anand vs I Nepomniachtchi, 2017 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: One alternative to 19...Rc8 is to spend this tempo on the move ...Qe7 by 19...Bxd5 20 Rxd5 Qe7 so that in the event of the pawn advance f2-f4 Black will have the option of ...Ne6
