   Ulhumbrus has kibitzed 20816 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Oct-23-16 Grischuk vs Svidler, 2016
Ulhumbrus: One alternative to 23 a4 is 23 Bxd5 cxd5 24 Rc7 occupying the 7th rank. It may be that Grischuk wants to prepare the capture Bxd5 by playing a4 and axb5 first in order to remove a weak a-pawn, but that Svidler is too strong a player to not guess Grischuk's intention and to wait ...
   Oct-09-16 Caruana vs Adams, 2016 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: After the exchange 12...Bxc4, 13...Qe7 seems consistent followed by ...Qe6 unpinning the knight. By removing White's king's bishop Black has gained the use of the square e6 for his queen.
   Oct-07-16 Anand vs Aronian, 2016
Ulhumbrus: One justification for 22 Qc4 is that it pins a piece.
   Oct-07-16 Mamedyarov vs Kramnik, 2016 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: An alternative to 17...Rfd8 is 17...Be6 defending the d5 pawn with the least powerful piece and keeping the king's rook to join an attack on the c5 pawn As for his later choices, Kramnik may have gone too far trying to avoid a draw and win this game.
   Oct-06-16 Gelfand vs I Nepomniachtchi, 2016 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: This is a link to the live games display on the chess24 website:
   Oct-05-16 Kramnik vs Tomashevsky, 2016
Ulhumbrus: Tomashevsky has passed the examination given by Kramnik, one of the toughest examiners possible
   Oct-05-16 I Nepomniachtchi vs Anand, 2016 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: One idea is 22...Nd7 beginning the plan of ...f6, ...Bf7 and ...Nb6 attacking White's c4 pawn
   Oct-05-16 Li Chao vs I Nepomniachtchi, 2016
Ulhumbrus: Instead of 8...e5, 8...Nb6 seems consistent with the move 7...Bd7. It makes count the queen's bishop on d7 by attacking White's N on a4 again. Black threatens then ...e5 and has three pieces developed to White's two knights on the rim
   Oct-03-16 Tomashevsky vs Anand, 2016
Ulhumbrus: If after 9...Qxe7 Black gains no more than a draw two alternatives before this are 9...Nxe7 and 8...exd5.
   Oct-03-16 Aronian vs A Giri, 2016 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: An alternative to 11...Bh3 is 11...f5. If the N on d2 which obstructs white's QB and so makes it a target invites the attack ..Nd5, it invites the attack ...f5-f4 as well.
