   Oct-31-14 Carlsen-Anand World Championship (2014) (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: Perhaps the most valuable games for Anand are the ones which he has lost. It is from them that he can learn what to avoid.
 
   Oct-29-14 Gelfand vs Jobava, 2014 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: If the attack 8 Qg4 does not win a pawn on g7 owing to the counter-attack ...Rg8 on White's own g2 pawn this suggests 8 Ngf3
 
   Oct-28-14 Bronstein vs Korchnoi, 1964
 
Ulhumbrus: One point of 17 f5!! is that if the fork Nxf5+ is a potential threat Black has f5 covered not with two pawns but only with one pawn. For capturing a second time with the second pawn invites the fork Nxf5+ forking Black's king and queen. Thus by making use of a combination ...
 
   Oct-27-14 D Andreikin vs Karjakin, 2014 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: Alekhine has indicated that 3 Bg5 may allow Black to equalize with less trouble than in normal lines but it may also induce Black to overrate his side of the position and to underestimate the player with the white pieces
 
   Oct-27-14 Mamedyarov vs Kasimdzhanov, 2014 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: 21...Qh4 seems inconsistent. Having removed White's a pawn he transfers his queen to the king side. Instead of this 21...Qe8 heads for a4
 
   Oct-27-14 Spassky vs Korchnoi, 1978
 
Ulhumbrus: After 20 Kg2 Black's c4 pawn seems exposed to attack. An alternative to 20...Na5 is 20...Nb4 heading for d5 and on 21 d5 Bc5 attacks White's pinned bishop on e3
 
   Oct-27-14 Spassky vs Korchnoi, 1978
 
Ulhumbrus: As 29 hxg6 allows Black's QB to enter the game this suggests keeping White's h5 pawn by eg 29 Kg2 and now how is Black going to get his QB into the game? It is possible that 28...g5 upset Spassky by appearing to taking over the attack on the king side but perhaps this was only so ...
 
   Oct-27-14 Radjabov vs Karjakin, 2014 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: <Sally Simpson> The advance d3 can be attractive in its own ways and it avoids making such concessions as the advance d4 will make. The concession which it does make is that of space to Black whereas the advance d4 as in the game Spassky vs Korchnoi, 1978 does not let Black ...
 
   Oct-26-14 Nakamura vs A Giri, 2014 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: <The17thPawn> In the game Carlsen vs Nakamura, 2014 Nakamura created at least one target for White. This suggests that if Nakamura wanted to win here in the way in which Carlsen had done he needed to create at least one target for himself eg 18 b5 instead of 18 Rac1, keeping
 
   Oct-25-14 V Nevostrujev vs Jakovenko, 2011
 
Ulhumbrus: The attempted combination 27 Rd8? leads to a win for Black instead of a win for White. White wins a pawn but at too high a price: White's king is left exposed to a mating attack at the hands of Black's queen and knight 23...Bc8 has disconnected Black's rooks and this suggests 24 ...
