   Feb-25-15 W So vs I Saric, 2015
 
Ulhumbrus: < visayanbraindoctor: IMO the most impressive game of the tournament so far. So displays total tactical control in a sharp middlegame. The succession of tactical moves: 16. Ng5! 17. e5! 20. Qd2! 22. Nc5! 24. g4! is astonishing. In the old days, this game would have won a ...
 
   Feb-25-15 Tomashevsky vs Kasimdzhanov, 2015 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: 6 h3 moves a pawn in the opening. This suggests the question of how Black can gain from this loss of a tempo. One alternative to 7...Nh5 is 7...Ne8 preparing ...f5 without making a target of the N on h5
 
   Feb-24-15 Capablanca vs Bogoljubov, 1924
 
Ulhumbrus: <crwynn> : How about this: Bogoljubov saw too late an answer to a difficulty in the way of an answer to a difficulty in the way of White's ability to win the e pawn after ...e3 with the result that White was able to win the e3 pawn after all. eg One difficulty in the way of ...
 
   Feb-24-15 M Vachier-Lagrave vs Tomashevsky, 2015 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: Because Black combines the moves 17...exd4 and 20...Be6 the capture 21 Bxe6 will not give Black doubled e pawns. Perhaps with 18...c5 Tomashevsky has anticipated that White will not be able to keep Black's backward d6 pawn from advancing to d5
 
   Feb-23-15 Svidler vs Jobava, 2015 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: One alternative to 16 Nxf5 is 16 e4
 
   Feb-23-15 Svidler vs D Andreikin, 2015 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: 24...Qc5 allows White to shatter Black's pawn structure after 25 Nxe6. On 24...Qd6 25 Nf5 Qxd5 26 Ne7+ forks Black's king and queen. One alternative to all this is 24...Qd8
 
   Feb-23-15 Radjabov vs Grischuk, 2015 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: After 21 Bxf7+ White has lost a rook while Black's king has lost safety. On this occasion the safety of Black's king turns out to be more valuable than a rook.
 
   Feb-20-15 Kasimdzhanov vs Svidler, 2015 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: The move 7 f4 grips the square e5 but it also invites the counter-attack ...c5 from Black. If after that pawns are exchanged on d5 it is as if White has played f4 after gaining an isolated d pawn in the Queen's gambit. This works well sometimes as in the game Lasker vs Maroczy, ...
 
   Feb-18-15 Karjakin vs Anand, 2015 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: One alternative to c5 is to try to undouble the c pawns by the manoeuvre Nc2-e3-d5 as in the game Korchnoi vs Mecking, 1974
 
   Feb-17-15 Topalov vs Caruana, 2014 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: This game may indicate some answers to the question: What does one do against the move g4 if it is unsound? The moves 17...Be8 and 18...b5 indicate one answer: prepare to occupy the weakened h2-b8 diagonal with the king's bishop. The move 17...Be8 clears the d file and uncovers an
