   Jan-25-15 Carlsen vs I Saric, 2015
 
Ulhumbrus: An alternative to 7...b5 is 7...e6 so as to keep White's N out of d5 and if 8 e5 d5 is as in the king's pawn open game. After 12 Bb3 White's KB bites on granite and his c pawn is backward. Instead of 12...Bd6, 12...a5 threatens ...a4
 
   Jan-25-15 Jobava vs Radjabov, 2015 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: A Benko gambit which failed. Can Black improve on his play? If the flank attack 11 h5 can be called premature this suggests playing in the centre by 11...e6
 
   Jan-25-15 Caruana vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2015 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: If on 12 Be3 Black can play 12...Nb6 advantageously this suggests 12 a5.
 
   Jan-25-15 W So vs Van Wely, 2015 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: 12...f4 may be an overoptimistic attempt to put White's QB out of play, an attempt which does not succeed
 
   Jan-25-15 Aronian vs Ding Liren, 2015 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: 6 h3 moves a pawn in the opening. At the very least it loses a tempo for development. 8 g3 exposes the king side further and practically invites the attack 8...f5 Is 9...gxf5 necessary? One alternative is the pawn sacrifice 9...e4. White's king has not castled, after all. 11 c5 ...
 
   Jan-24-15 Van Wely vs Jobava, 2015
 
Ulhumbrus: 15 Rae1?! attempts to attack the king side when it is on the queen side that White has more space. Nimzowitsch saya of the game Opocensky vs Nimzowitsch, 1925 <White has been untrue to his queen side. The just punishment will lie in Black's becoming strong there!> This ...
 
   Jan-24-15 Carlsen vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2015
 
Ulhumbrus: Why does White not win even though he is a pawn ahead? If the computer's evaluations are correct when they indicate that White has an advantage but not enough to win, why are they correct? One possible reason is that Black has his own passed pawn. If we remove the Black a pawn and
 
   Jan-23-15 A Giri vs Van Wely, 2015 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: Instead of 10...Ng4 10...Be6 gets the QB out 12...Nxf3 moves the N a third time to exchange it for a N moved once and strengthens White's centre as well. This suggests that everything has gone wrong for Black. 15...f5 obstructs Black's bishop. Black cannot want to make this ...
 
   Jan-23-15 W So vs I Saric, 2015 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: With 12...ed Black hopes that White's centre will become a target instead of a weapon. It is not to be. After 17 e5 White's centre becomes a weapon instead of a target.
 
   Jan-23-15 Ding Liren vs W So, 2015
 
Ulhumbrus: <haydn20: Ah--the mighty give-no-quarter chess superhero takes a coward's GM draw.> You call this drawish?
