   Sep-21-14 Viswanathan Anand (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: Anand's loss in the game Aronian vs Anand, 2014 may be a blessing in disguise. Perhaps more than any other recent game it is this game which Anand is advised to examine closely in order to help prepare himself for the coming match. In the position after 22 Re4 Black has an ...
 
   Sep-21-14 Aronian vs Anand, 2014 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: Anand's loss in this game may be a blessing in disguise. Perhaps more than any other recent game it is this game which Anand is advised to examine closely in order to help prepare himself for the coming match. In the position after 22 Re4 Black has an isolated e6 pawn and from ...
 
   Sep-19-14 Caruana vs M Roiz, 2014
 
Ulhumbrus: 19 Bb3!! places White's king's bishop on the diagonal a2-g8 which is blocked by the d5 pawn. Caruana has anticipated that Black is going to play ...c6 and open the diagonal a2-g8 for White's king's bishop.
 
   Sep-19-14 Anand vs Vallejo-Pons, 2014 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: I thought before, after looking at the computer's evaluations, that Anand had gained only a slight positional advantage following the opening, an advantage which snowballed. However having taken a look at the game I must revise this opinion. If we look at the position after 21 Ne3
 
   Sep-17-14 Reti vs Znosko-Borovsky, 1922
 
Ulhumbrus: 27 Rb1!! is the first of a group of three moves comprising a manoeuvre of the rook, the second and third moves being 28 Rb3 and 29 Rg3+
 
   Sep-16-14 M Vachier-Lagrave vs Caruana, 2014
 
Ulhumbrus: This was Caruana's seventh successive win. I believe the expression for such a run is <Caruana in unstoppable form>
 
   Sep-15-14 Aronian vs Ponomariov, 2014 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: As 14...b5 gives Aronian the superior pawn formation after 15 ab cb . On the other hand if Black tries to prepare the advance ...b5 by 14...a6 White can fix the b pawn by 15 a5. this suggests preparing the advance ...b5 by 14...b6 and 15...a6
 
   Sep-15-14 Vallejo-Pons vs Aronian, 2014 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: The piece sacrifice prepared by 13 e4 would be brilliant if it were to work but unfortunately for White Black can decline it and Aronian does decline it. The computer evaluations suggest that the pawn sacrifice 25...g3+? instead of 25...Rxf4+ lets slip Black's advantage, and that ...
 
   Sep-15-14 Anand vs Ponomariov, 2014 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: 6 h3 (and even more so 9 g4) disturbs the king side pawns and amounts to a declaration that White is going to castle on the queen side. This suggests ...c5 instead of 6...e5 eg 6...b6 7 Be3 c5 One question which may be asked of the move 9...Nc5 is this: Is this the best way to ...
 
   Sep-07-14 Nakamura vs Caruana, 2014 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: One objection to 10 cxd5 was suggested by a comment from Ashley. He said that after Nxg6 Black would have three minor pieces able to attack black squares to White's two. The capture 10 cxd5 clears the square c6 for Black's N from which to attack the black square d4. This suggests ...
