   Jun-16-17 Kramnik vs A Giri, 2017 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: The computer evaluations and analysis suggest that Giri does gain the upper hand from the opening but that 10...Bd6? instead of 10...Qc7! passes the advantage to White. The difference is that the black queen from c7 is able to support the move 12...Nc6 after the moves 11 a3 a5 12 ...
 
   Jun-16-17 W So vs Aronian, 2017 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: He may as well try 36 Rc7 if he can't hold on to the pawn
 
   Jun-15-17 Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2017 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: 13...cxd4 frees White's queen's bishop. 19...Nxc3 frees White's king's bishop. 26...Qa4 neglects Black's queen's rook 28 Nxg7 gains for two pieces not only a rook and pawn but also an unsafe Black king. Perhaps Karjakin would have been advised well to avoid the sacrifice.
 
   Jun-15-17 M Vachier-Lagrave vs Kramnik, 2017 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: In the ending White is a pawn down but he is playing with an extra king and this suggests that Kramnik allowed White's king to develop and become a weapon before he had brought his own king out..
 
   Jun-15-17 M Vachier-Lagrave vs A Giri, 2017 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: Instead of 19 Kb1, 19 Bxa4 Qxa4 20 Qd4+ Kh7 21 b3 covers the a1 square and White's attack continues Perhaps in such a sharp line it took just one small oversight or flaw in White's plans somewhere to pass any advantage to Black.
 
   Jun-15-17 Kramnik vs Carlsen, 2017 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: 12 Bd3 places the bishop as in the game Tarrasch vs Alekhine, 1925 In that game Alekhine played eventually ...exd4 and answered the capture Nxd4 with ....Ne5. One question is to what extent Carlsen can manage to follow Alekhine's plan now. Is 13 ...h6 necessary? 13...Nf4 occupies ...
 
   Jun-15-17 Karjakin vs Aronian, 2017 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: 6 a4 does not get a piece out. This suggests 6...d6 Instead of 6...a5, 6...a6 concedes less 11...Nh7?! frees the f pawn but also removes pressure from White's e4 pawn. This suggests 12 d4 before Black can play ...f5 and ...f4. 14...Ne7 attacks f5 but also removes pressure from ...
 
   Jun-12-17 Carlsen vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2017 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: 21 Bxb5?! exchanges the b3 pawn for the b5 pawn but the b3 pawn is more valuable than the b5 pawn in one respect: it keeps Black's pieces out of the c4 square. 25...Ra8?! exchanges rooks but the black rook may be more valuable if White's c3 pawn is going to become backward, as ...
 
   Jun-12-17 Nakamura vs Karjakin, 2017 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: One question is whether there was a way for White to overburden the defensive resources available to Black.
 
   Jun-12-17 Caruana vs Anand, 2017 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: After 7 d4 we have the result of playing d4 with the "Sicilian" pawn formation c4-d3-e3. According to Harry Golombek the "Ruy Lopez" pawn formation c6-d6-e5 is superior to the pawn formation c4-d3-e3. 9..Bxc3+?! concedes the bishop pair. However White has to be able to make it ...
