   Nov-27-14 Nakamura-Aronian Match (2014) (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: If the match was decided by the blitz games that is one good reason for confining such a match to games with classical time controls. Also if both players can be trusted to not cheat, bring back the traditional adjournments with computers telephones etc excluded from the presence ...
 
   Nov-27-14 Carlsen vs Anand, 2014 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: After 13 d4 White has an advantage in space and if other things are equal, according to Fine the attack is the way to make use of an advantage in space. However other things are not equal: Black may be able to make his c pawn count. Svidler suggested that if Black had played ...c5
 
   Nov-24-14 Aronian vs Nakamura, 2014 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: On the matter of bishop versus knight endings Capablanca says in his book <chess fundamentals> of one position where either side has a passed pawn that Black (the side with the knight) will have great difficulty drawing the position if he can do it at all. This suggests if ...
 
   Nov-24-14 Carlsen vs Anand, 2014 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: Objective criticism of the exchange sacrifice becomes irrelevant if the cause was nerves and a momentary loss of objectivity. Anand said that the exchange sacrifice was a bad gamble. In other words he did not examine it thoroughly before choosing it. This does suggest the ...
 
   Nov-24-14 Viswanathan Anand (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: It was only in the second game that Anand was outplayed and he may have lacked confidence then. Game 6 was lost after a double blunder and game 11 from nerves. Apart from that Anand was able to battle with Carlsen on equal terms. This matters because we do not know what the result

   Nov-22-14 Anand vs Carlsen, 2014 (replies)
 
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 ...
 
   Nov-20-14 Carlsen vs Anand, 2014 (replies)
 
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>
