   Ulhumbrus has kibitzed 21160 times to chessgames   [more...]
   May-15-17 I Nepomniachtchi vs A R Saleh Salem, 2017
Ulhumbrus: After 17...hxg3 White has the bishop pair but Black will be able to reduce the value of this asset to zero as if by a magic spell by manoeuvring his queen's knight to the central square d4. This suggests that this manoeuvre counts as a potential threat on the part of Black.
   May-15-17 Mamedyarov vs Adams, 2017 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: If on 13 ...c6 White can pre-empt the advance 14...b5 with 14 a5, one alternative is to 13...c6 is 13...Rab8 and on 14 a5 c5
   May-15-17 Yifan Hou vs Ding Liren, 2017 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: Instead of 12 Bh4, 12 Nh4 heads for f5 eg after Nb1-d2-f1-e3
   May-15-17 Harikrishna vs Svidler, 2017
Ulhumbrus: The move 12...Qa4! suggests that this attack along the fourth rank upon White's central e4 pawn has to be considered a potential threat. In that case why not defend the e4 pawn by 14 Bd3? The answer is that this obstructs White's defence of the d6 pawn. It seems that the advance ...
   May-11-17 Rubinstein vs Nimzowitsch, 1925
Ulhumbrus: Nimzovich has given two exclamation marks to the move 18...Rfe8. This suggests that the pair of moves 17...a4 and 18...Rfe8 can be considered an improvement on 17...Rfe8 at once.
   May-10-17 Karpov vs Svidler, 2017 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: A duel between two players whose very names promise an interesting game, a former world champion against one of the strongest Russian players in Russia
   May-10-17 Grischuk vs B Grachev, 2017 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: After 19...b5 20 ab Rxb6 Black's a and c pawns turn out to be weaker than White's a and c pawns
   May-08-17 Eljanov vs Kramnik, 2017
Ulhumbrus: One alternative to 15 Ne5 is 15 a5 and if 15...Nd5 16 Ne5. In that case the exchange 16...Nxc3 17 bxc3 strengthens further White's centre
   May-08-17 Karpov vs R Edouard, 2016
Ulhumbrus: After 12 Qd2 Black has developed his king's rook and knights while White's queen blocks White's bishop. Edouard manages to make count his enormous lead in development.
   May-08-17 R Edouard vs Karpov, 2016
Ulhumbrus: Perhaps when offering the pawn sacrifice 12...Be7 Karpov has not considered the exchange sacrifice 15 c4!! gaining a central pawn phalanx, the bishop pair, a lead in development and an attack against Black's uncastled king and disconnected rooks
