   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 ...
   Oct-23-14 Nakamura vs A Giri, 2014 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: I thought when looking at the position after 14 Ke2 that Nakamura was going to win - and had perhaps planned to win - by using his bishop against a knight as in the game Carlsen vs Nakamura, 2014 . It may be worth comparing that game with this game in order to see which ...
   Oct-23-14 Mamedyarov vs Gelfand, 2014 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: The move 17 Ra1 loses two tempi for development with White's queen's rook. This suggests that Black can lose "only" one tempo for development with his queen by 17...Qc7 or even two by 17...Qd8. One earlier alternative to all this for Black 16...Qb6 is 16...Nh5 with the idea - ...
   Oct-23-14 Kasimdzhanov vs Jobava, 2014 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: Afyer 12...Bxd5 Black has a pawn but has lost the right to castle and so connect his rooks. This suggests that White is advised to develop his queen's rook as quickly as possible. Moreover if White's worst placed piece is his QR, his second worst placed piece is his QB. All this ...
   Oct-23-14 Karjakin vs Jakovenko, 2014 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: Instead of 14...f5 14...Bh3 connects the rooks. Perhaps Karjakin succeeded in tempting Black into overrating his side of the position
   Oct-22-14 Bronstein vs Botvinnik, 1944
Ulhumbrus: In the position after 22...Rad8 consider the following question: why is a rook and pawn stronger than a bishop and knight, when it is? One answer is: when that pawn is a dangerous distant passed pawn which compels the opponent to give up one of his minor pieces for it. In the ...
   Oct-21-14 Caruana vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2014 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: In the game Topalov vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2014 White won instead of Black. This suggests the question of what the differences are between that game and the present game.
   Oct-21-14 Radjabov vs Karjakin, 2014 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: Instead of playing d4 as eg in the game Spassky vs Korchnoi, 1978 Radjabov keeps his d pawn back on d3 and concedes space to Karjakin. If the plan is to prepare f4 and advance the f pawn so as to start a king side attack, the attempted attack does not succeed.
   Oct-21-14 Mamedyarov vs D Andreikin, 2014 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: One justification for 21...Rad8 is that White can't yet play 22 f5 (in order to displace Black's QB from its task of defending the d5 pawn) as the f4 pawn is pinned
   Oct-19-14 Carlsen-Anand World Championship (2014) (replies)
Ulhumbrus: No one knows what the result of the match will be. The only thing which a rating can give us is a guess as to the chances. Speaking of the fifth game of the last match Anand said in an interview that he had tried to <contain Carlsen> and that this had not worked. ...
