   Nov-23-14 Carlsen-Anand World Championship (2014) (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: Congratulations to Carlsen on winning the match. Kramnik may have been right to say that Anand had a psychological problem and that Anand was afraid of Carlsen before the Chennai natch but to a lesser extent before the Sochi match as well. Anand lost the 6th game partly because ...

Ulhumbrus: Kramnik may have been right to say that Anand had a psychological problem and that Anand was afraid of Carlsen before Chennai but to a lesser extent before Sochi as well. Anand lost the 6th game partly because he did not believe that Carlsen could make a blunder. Anand needed ...
 
   Nov-23-14 Carlsen vs Anand, 2014 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: This is from the things which Anand said at the press conference. Anand said that he had seen that he could have played ...Bg7 with approximate equality. Anand said <I can't say why I decided suddenly to go for this exchange sacrifice...I mean...I did not see anything very ...
 
   Nov-23-14 Aronian vs Nakamura, 2014 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: After 27 Bxc1 White has a powerful bishop against a knight and an asymmetrical pawn structure which includes a queen side pawn majority. After 35 h4 Black's king side pawn majority is fixed - at least temporarily - whereas White's queen side pawn majority is not Another endgame ...

Ulhumbrus: After 7...Na6 Black intends obviously ...c5. According to Golombek White prevails in the Gruenfeld defence if he can conquer the central point d5. This suggests making White's KB contribute towards an attack upon d5 by Bc4 instead of Be2 eg 8 Qb3 c5 9 d5 e6 10 Bg5 Another way to ...
 
   Nov-22-14 Nakamura vs Aronian, 2014 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: An alternative to 11...Ne4 is 11...e5 at once 12...Nxd2 gains the bishop pair but it also moves the knight a third time to exchange it for a bishop moved once. The result is that after 13 Nxd2 White is ahead in development and can respond to 13...e5 with 14 e4, opening lines ...

Ulhumbrus: At the risk of repetition, my guess is that Anand had tried to find a way to get the better of the Berlin wall but then after finding out all the ways in which Black could create difficulties for White he decided to make use of the Berlin wall himself.
 
   Nov-18-14 Anand vs Carlsen, 2014 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: Draw agreed. Svidler says that <it is back to the drawing board for Anand> and that <this is a dent in his opening plans>
 
   Nov-17-14 Carlsen vs Anand, 2014 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: Draw agreed. Anand passed the examination.
 
   Nov-16-14 Carlsen vs Anand, 2014 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: No one can avoid bad luck. What Anand can do however is to extract whatever useful lessons he can from any loss. Anand may have gained at least one valuable thing from game 6: Carlsen has proven that he can make blunders. One lesson which Anand may have learnt from this game is ...
