   Jun-11-18 Carlsen vs Mamedyarov, 2018 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: Instead of 11...Nxd2, 11...Nc5 heads towards d3 12 Qxd2 supports the move Ng5. If the purpose of 12...Qd7 is to answer 13 Ng5 with 13...Bf5 this suggests some move other than 13 Ng5. One alternative to 13 Qd3 is 13 Nd4. Then one way for Black to lose material is 13...Bg4 14 Nxc6 ...

Ulhumbrus: < devere: The losing move was 41...Rd3 instead of 41...Rd2 which draws. Wesley So played 41...Rd3 after 4 seconds thought, so it seems that he became disoriented at the end of the first time control. He had a lot of time to think of the correct move, and did not use it.> One
   Jun-07-18 Karjakin vs Anand, 2018 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: The sudden drop in the computer evaluation for White after 26 h4?? suggests that it is a losing blunder and Black's reply 26...Ne5! threatens to trap White's queen by 27...Ng4 after which White has to lose at least a pawn in order to save his queen.
   Jun-07-18 M Vachier-Lagrave vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: < Andrew Chapman: I just tried out ulhumbrus's idea on stockfish (sorry) and saw a problem. pawn takes, rook takes, h3 and then if knight retreats to f6 the rook gets trapped. Andrew> This could be the reason why Carlsen does not play the advance. It suggests that Black has
   Jun-07-18 Nakamura vs Karjakin, 2018 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: The result of the game following the move 26 Rxe1 suggests that a rook is stronger than a knight and two pawns in an ending
   Jun-07-18 Anand vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: In the position after 13...cxd6 if Black's advanced king side pawns are a target instead of a weapon it may be that in order to make this count Anand has to avoid two types of error: That of trying to attack too quickly and that of trying to attack too slowly. 14 c4 undermines the
   Jun-05-18 M Vachier-Lagrave vs Anand, 2018 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: Lasker gives 11 Bc2 instead of 11 Re1 and perhaps one reason is that on 11 Re1 Nc5 Black's knight attacks the d3 square. Instead of 14...Nf4, 14...Nxc1 gains the bishop pair but at a high price: the knight moves a fifth time to exchange itself for a bishop not moved at all, making
   Jun-05-18 Caruana vs Nakamura, 2018 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: 28...Ra6 29 a4 Ra5 gets ready for 30...Rh5. As the king is a piece in the ending, one question is when to advance the king. One example of an answer is, when the opposing rook can't make the player pay for advancing the king
   Jun-05-18 Mamedyarov vs W So, 2018 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: Anand takes a draw. Perhaps he is short of time or isn't sure whether his king's bishop is stronger or weaker than a knight if White exchanges the white squared bishops
   Jun-03-18 W So vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: If Carlsen resigns after 44 c6 this suggests that this is the right way to attack and not something like e5 or Qf7. This suggests as well that So has been up to the task and has not let the win slip.
