   Ulhumbrus has kibitzed 23086 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Oct-14-19 Spassky vs Keres, 1965
Ulhumbrus: If on 22...Nb7 23 b4 puts the N out of play one alternative is 22...Nc6
   Oct-14-19 McShane vs Caruana, 2019 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: My present guess is a draw although I don't rule out the possibility that White may win by means of scores of moves which are incomprehensible to an ordinary player.
   Oct-13-19 McShane vs Lu Shanglei, 2019 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: One point of 11 Nd5 is that White's queen is defended by the bishop on e3 so it can afford to advance to e7 and take Black's queen's bishop, and so gain the bishop pair. This costs time but Black does not manage to make it count.
   Oct-13-19 Caruana vs S Sevian, 2019
Ulhumbrus: 7 b3 begins the plan of playing Bb2, the the manoeuvre Na3-c2 and e4 followed by d4. The plan succeeds. Black is able to blockade the d2 pawn only temporarily by 11...Qd3. White forces the queen away by 13 Bf1 and then plays d4.
   Oct-13-19 Shirov vs Caruana, 2019 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: The manoeuvre 30 Rg3 and 32 Rg1 loses two tempi with the rook for nothing. Instead of this 30 Bd3 gets the bishop out at once.
   Oct-12-19 S Sjugirov vs P Cramling, 2019
Ulhumbrus: After 27 Qf2 Black's worst placed piece is the knight and on 27...f5 28 e5 keeps the knight out of play on the edge of the board and Black's game becomes handicapped. In that case one alternative to 27....f5 is 27...Nf6 getting the knight back into play.
   Oct-12-19 Anand vs T Baron, 2019
Ulhumbrus: After 19 Nc4 White is four moves ahead of Black in development. If White can make this count and if other things are equal, Black is lost.
   Oct-11-19 E Najer vs Anand, 2019 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: According to the chessbase annotator when White plays 18 f5 he intends to play the sacrifice Bxg6 following the captures Bxd3 and f5xg6. This suggests something useful to know about: After f5 the sacrifice Bxg6 counts as a potential threat.
   Oct-11-19 Carlsen vs Kuzubov, 2019 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: 33...Bxd2 takes the exchange whereas 33...Qxe5 given by the computer as well as by a commentator traps a piece, the knight on d6. It may be that for a long time until the end Black played to lose: He went too far trying to extract a win from an equal position.
   Oct-02-19 Ding Liren vs Radjabov, 2019 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: <DreighNoriel: 40. ..Nxd5 will lead to a draw> It might but for one thing: After 40...Nxd5 41 cxd5 Black's queen is overworked. She can't defend both the pawn on f6 and the rook on e8 eg 41...Qf7 42 Rxe8+ Qxe8 43 Qxf6+ Kg8 44 Qg7 mate or 41...Qxe1 42 Qxf6+ Kg8 43 Qg7 mate
