   Apr-20-18 Ding Liren vs R Wojtaszek, 2018 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: How about the following idea. In the position after 34...Qc7 suppose that White plays d3-d4. Then ...cxd4 displaces the c5 pawn and allows Bb4 attacking the d6 pawn while ...exd4 displaces the e5 pawn and allows Bf4 attacling the d6 pawn. In the event of Bb4 White Would like to ...
   Apr-20-18 Carlsen vs Navara, 2018
Ulhumbrus: 9...Bxc5?! concedes the bishop pair. This suggests 9...Nxc5. 12 Nd4 offers a pawn on e5. Navara declines the offer. 15 Nxc6?! moves the knight a third time to exchange it for a knight moved twice and strengthens Black's centre. This reduces any positional advantage which White may
   Apr-20-18 Caruana vs Lenderman, 2018 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: Black's queen tries to help defend the king side but then she herself becomes a target
   Apr-19-18 Y Zherebukh vs W So, 2018 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: 21 Rf1?! displaces a defender of the c4 pawn. The result is that on 21...b5! White has to play 22 cxb5 and so in effect make the concession of exchanging the more valuable c4 pawn for the less valuable a6 pawn. 25..Nd7 offers a pawn on d6 which White cannot accept as on 26 Qxd6 ...
   Apr-13-18 F van der Elburg vs Ivan Popov, 2013 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: This is the kind of opening and win one may see occasionally in five minute games. I don't believe for a moment that ...h5 is a good move and if you want an argument here is one: What do you suppose would happen if White were to try an early h4 against a Sicilian defence, assuming
   Apr-10-18 Alexander Alekhine (replies)
Ulhumbrus: It may be that the greatest master of attack was not Alekhine but Lasker, and for this reason: Alekhine could find with great proficiency the right choice of attacking move but it was Lasker who understood the reasons why the right choice of attacking move was the right choice. ...
   Apr-10-18 Vitiugov vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: 5...Qd7!! obstructing Black's own QB looks like a brilliant innovation and an alternative answer to the threat of Nxe4. Now on 6 Nxe4 dxe4 7 Qxd7+ Bxd7 develops the bishop. 8...Ne6! occupies a blockade square and perhaps in this case the blockading knight works in the way in which
   Apr-08-18 Carlsen vs Vitiugov, 2018 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: If the White king could get into the game Black might get into trouble. This suggests the plan for White of playing his king to c2 followed by b3.
   Apr-08-18 Caruana vs Aronian, 2018 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: White has more space but Black has a lead in development. My present guess is a draw but if neither player wants it we may see some interesting play. On the other hand how can either player avoid chopping wood on the opened e file, if the alternative is to concede it to the ...
   Apr-07-18 Anand vs G Meier, 2018
Ulhumbrus: If 20 Bg5 lets slip any White advantage one alternative is 20 Nd3
