   Jan-29-17 Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2017 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: An alternative to 24...Nc5 is 24...Nd7-f8 clearing the square d7 for the manoeuvre Ra8-d8-d7 An alternative to 26...Qg6 allowing the fork Ne7 is 26...Nd7-f8 clearing the square d7 for the manoeuvre Ra8-d8-d7
 
   Jan-29-17 I Nepomniachtchi vs W So, 2017 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: So has a queen and a pawn for a rook and bishop. Does he have an easy win, a difficult win, a difficult win which becomes easy for him owing to his knowledge and skill, or a difficult win which he makes appear easy after making use of his knowledge and skill? That remains to be ...
 
   Jan-28-17 Eljanov vs Carlsen, 2017 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: Euwe said of Capablanca something like this, perhaps someone can find the exact words <Whether the ending is won, drawn or lost he simply wins it! That is why he is Capablanca!>
 
   Jan-26-17 Aronian vs R Rapport, 2017 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: The move 9 Be1 is an undeveloping move and this suggests opening of lines by 10...d5. Moreover the capture 12...Bxd4 takes a valuable central pawn which White has offered and this suggests that the move is correct. Then how can the move 10...d5 be a mistake leading to a winning ...
 
   Jan-25-17 Carlsen vs Van Wely, 2017 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: 22 Nc5 both attacks the bishop on a6 and discovers an attack on the c6 pawn. This suggests that 19...Qf4 loses a pawn.
 
   Jan-25-17 W So vs R Wojtaszek, 2017 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: One reason to not play 20...Rfd8 is that if Black keeps clear the square d8, he has the option of the move ...Nd8 in reply to b5.
 
   Jan-23-17 Karjakin vs W So, 2017 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: <1971: <Ulhumbrus: One example of a possible explanation for the draw is that So has considered it advisable to acquire experience of losing this type of position against a computer, so as to learn the ways in which it can be won, before playing to win it against the ...
 
   Jan-23-17 R Rapport vs Carlsen, 2017 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: After 7 g3 the game appears to begin to transpose into a type of Reti opening seen in the game Reti vs Lasker, 1924 with however a few differences. One difference is that Carlsen develops his king's bishop not on d6 but more conservatively - or more passively- on e7 from where it ...
 
   Jan-21-17 W So vs Eljanov, 2017 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: With 20...Rf8 we have an King's Indian type formation. White plays for c4-c5 while Black plays for ...f5. This may seem to favour White, but for one possibly important thing: White has disturbed his king side pawns by the move 16 g3, and this helps Black. It suggests that White ...
 
   Jan-20-17 B Adhiban vs W So, 2017 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: If 19...Nxe5 regains the pawn at the cost of the bishop pair and leads to no more than a draw, one alternative is 19...b6 keeping up the attack
