   Dec-16-18 Geller vs Smyslov, 1965
Ulhumbrus: According to the general rule a central attack prevails over a king side attack, and one remark on the part of Golombek suggests that it does so every time. However this time after the central capture 24...Rxe4 it is the king side attack 25 fxg6!! which prevails instead. One ...
   Dec-13-18 Aronian vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2018 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: When GM Seirawan gave his commentary on the opening he did not mention his own win in the game Seirawan vs Miles, 1982 or the game Polugaevsky vs Korchnoi, 1980
   Dec-12-18 Nakamura vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: One alternative to 16 Qf4 is 16 Bxe4 dxe4 17 Ne5 aiming for the blockade square e3 via c4.
   Dec-12-18 Caruana vs Nakamura, 2018
Ulhumbrus: <offramp> 25 axb5 opens a file but if White is playing for a king side attack he will want to avoid opening a file. Suppose that White plays 25 g4 at this point. Then one way for Black to lose is 25 ...Ne6 26 Rdh3 Kf8 27 Nxe6+ Bxe6 28 Qa3+ Re7 29 Rh8 mate. In the last ...
   Dec-12-18 M Vachier-Lagrave vs Aronian, 2018 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: Instead of 12...Qb8, 12...Qd7 begins the plan of ...Nd8 and ...c5
   Dec-01-18 Carlsen - Caruana World Championship Match (2018) (replies)
Ulhumbrus: It may be that comparing Carlsen to Fischer or Kasparov is like comparing Lasker to Steinitz or Capablanca. One example of an answer is that he is in the same class or rank of mastership but of another generation.
   Nov-29-18 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: 21 Rh2? was the move which cost Caruana a chance to win and as it happened, the match. The computer evaluations as well as the GM comments suggest that after 21 0-0! Caruana would have had the upper hand and so a chance to win.
   Nov-28-18 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: Shahade says that Caruana has resigned and Carlsen has won the championship after a 3-0 win in the rapidplay games.
   Nov-28-18 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: The computer evaluations suggest that 21 c5 is mistaken and that 21 0-0 is better. Is this is so, it suggests that 21 c5 is premature. Interestingly enough Caruana also passed the advantage to Carlsen in game 12 by not castling and playing Rh2. This suggests that his play has been
   Nov-28-18 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: The computer evaluations suggest that instead of 37...Kxe4? at once the point of playing first 37...Ra2+!! forcing the white king to go to h3 by 38 Kh3 before taking the e pawn by 38...Kxe4 is that on 39 Re7+ the black king has the option of 39...Kf3!! and on 40 Rxg7 Ra1! White's ...
