   Jul-23-16 W So vs Carlsen, 2016 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: My present guess is that the game is heading for a draw. Carlsen has won the first prize already and does not need to take undue risk trying to win
   Jul-22-16 Carlsen vs A Giri, 2016 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: Was there any need for Giri to go after the e5 pawn? Doubtless Giri will examine this game.
   Jul-21-16 Wei Yi vs Nakamura, 2016 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: White has a bishop for a knight and Black's a and c pawns are isolated
   Jul-21-16 Karjakin vs Carlsen, 2016 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: One interesting idea is 18...c5 19 Bxb5 Rb8
   Jul-17-16 Carlsen vs W So, 2016 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: Carlsen is, as was Lasker, a player proficient enough to be a master of the highest class. There is no quick remedy for his opponents for this, unless you believe that it is possible for a player to increase his proficiency quickly.
   Jul-10-16 L Dominguez vs Kramnik, 2016
Ulhumbrus: 31...a4 is a concession in a way because it means that Black lacks time to play 31...f5. This suggests 32 f5.
   Jun-27-16 Smyslov vs Korchnoi, 1952
Ulhumbrus: If White is going to get into trouble after 11 a4 Qa5 one alternative to 11 a4 is 11 Qa3 keeping Black's queen out of a5
   Jun-25-16 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2015
Ulhumbrus: If 25 Re7 won't win the e6 pawn one alternative is 25 Re1 followed by 26 Bf1
   Jun-25-16 Anand vs Carlsen, 2015
Ulhumbrus: After 27 Bf2 g5 evades the attack on the g6 pawn and closes the f and g files. Instead of this 27 fxg6 opens the king side, but then 27...Bd4+ wins White's queen. It is because of this threat that Black can play 26...Qxa2 even though his g6 pawn is attacked. This suggests 27 Qd2 ...
   Jun-20-16 Carlsen vs Anand, 2016 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: <ndg2: Some rules seemingly only apply to the unwashed masses of us patzers and not to these elite bunch of super GMs. For example the notion that isolated doubled pawns are by necessity terrible. Here they provide nice outposts for white's pieces and shelter his position from ...
