   Oct-04-15 Karjakin vs Svidler, 2015 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: <sinclairkim: 44...Re8?? erniecohen: 44...d5 would have drawn.> The computer evaluations suggest that Svidler missed a chance by playing 44..Re8 instead of 44...d5
   Oct-03-15 Svidler vs Karjakin, 2015 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: Perhaps that was the way for Karjakin to have the best chance of winning: To induce Svidler to conceive a combination which would bring Svidler his desire, a combination which had however a hole in it.

Ulhumbrus: <Honza Cervenka: 37.Rb5??, that hurts. Sergey apparently forgot that the King can move from the pin.> After 35 Rb5 White's bishop is tied to the defence of the rook. In that case it does not attack Black's rook on f7. In that case Black's king is not tied to the defence of ...
   Oct-02-15 Svidler vs Karjakin, 2015
Ulhumbrus: <Mating Net: I find it quite remarkable that Black had his Queen and b8 Rook undefended after 22...Qe6. That's exactly the kind of piece uncoordination that I strive to avoid in pattzerville.> In the event that lines were opened by d4, Svidler's pieces were placed better to ...
   Oct-01-15 M Steinberg vs Karpov, 1969
Ulhumbrus: 25...f5 prepares to leave White with the bad bishop after he has got his queen side pawns fixed on black squares. Steinberg tries to get rid of his queen's bishop by 26 Bd6 but he does not succeed. Instead of taking his queen's bishop Karpov takes his knight.
   Sep-30-15 A Giri vs Svidler, 2015 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: Suppose that at move 27 White ignores Svidler's plan to open the a file and instead of 27 bxa4 plays 27 f4. Then on 27...axb3 28 axb3 Ra2 29 Kh1 Black has occupied the second rank. In addition to this Black's rook and bishop cover the square b2 and so prevent the move Bb2. Suppose
   Sep-29-15 Svidler vs A Giri, 2015
Ulhumbrus: One justification for a variation of the Sicilian defence where White could not play for a draw was that White wanted only to draw, so that his desires would have been contrary to the requirements of the situation on the board. As Ludek Pachman explained in his book <Pachman's ...
   Sep-29-15 Karjakin vs Eljanov, 2015 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: 5...Bxf3 parts with the bishop pair. Although White's advantage may be insufficient to win, it may increase to a winning degree after only a few inaccuracies from Black. This brings to mind the saying <The best way to gain a draw is to play for a win>
   Sep-29-15 Eljanov vs Karjakin, 2015
Ulhumbrus: 17...Bxc4 parts with the bishop pair, never an asset to concede lightly. After 18...d5 the pawn formation in the central zone is similar to that in the game Keres vs Fischer, 1962 with the difference that Black has conceded the bishop pair. It may be that this difference enables ...
   Sep-27-15 Eljanov vs Karjakin, 2015 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: Each sudden dip in the computer evaluation suggests that a player has made an error. It is however probably easier for a spectator to see the computer evaluations than it is for either player to find all of the right moves.
