   Ulhumbrus has kibitzed 19493 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Dec-22-14 Euwe vs Capablanca, 1922
Ulhumbrus: 17 g3 loses a pawn because 17...Bf5 gains a tempo and then 18...b5 gains another tempo and then 19...Bc5+ gains yet another tempo Euwe may have had his experience of meeting Capablanca for the first time in this game in mind when he said in his book <The Road to Chess ...
   Dec-22-14 Spassky vs Keres, 1965
Ulhumbrus: 31...Qe7 neglects the N on d8 and keeps Black's king's rook cut off from the c file. After this 21 Bxg7 begins the plan of Qc3, Qc7, Qb6, Qxa6 and Qxb5 gobbling up Black's two queen side pawns
   Dec-19-14 Capablanca vs Janowski, 1918
Ulhumbrus: <RookFile> One alternative to 12...Nd5, 12...Bxf3 and 12...b5 is 12...Ne4
   Dec-18-14 Adams vs Anand, 2014
Ulhumbrus: On the page To quote John Saunders <...Two of the games started with the ominous moves 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 Nf6, formerly known as the Berlin, but now renamed the London Defence by Anand...> To quote John Saunders further ...
   Dec-17-14 Janowski vs Lasker, 1910
Ulhumbrus: In his book <Chess secrets I learned from the masters> Edward Lasker says something like this: <Emanuel Lasker had heard that Janowsky had been making derogatory remarks about him and wanted to show that he could play with Janowsky like a cat with a did not ...
   Dec-16-14 Kramnik vs Nakamura, 2014 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: <karthick2229: <Any one please tell me .where nakamura made mistake?>> There was more than one mistake. One mistake was this: Nakamura opened lines when it was Kramnik who was ahead in development
   Dec-14-14 A Giri vs Kramnik, 2014 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: Instead of 7 Qc2, an alternative way to go after the c4 pawn ( perhaps also tried by Kramnik) is by 7 a4 followed by Na3 as in the games Anand vs Topalov, 2010 Anand vs Topalov, 2010 and Anand vs Topalov, 2010
   Dec-13-14 Kramnik vs Caruana, 2014 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: White played 11 Be2 and then later 17 Bd3. This suggests 11 Bd3 at once.
   Dec-13-14 Anand vs A Giri, 2014
Ulhumbrus: <Penguincw: Is there anything wrong with 8...Bxc3?> On 8...Bxc3 one commentator suggested 9 Ba3 preventing Black's king from castling on the king side After 9...0-0 White's worst placed piece is his queen's rook. This suggests 10 Rb1
   Dec-13-14 Nakamura vs Adams, 2014 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: The commentators pointed out that with his isolated e pawn the rook and pawn ending might have been lost for Black even if he had had an a pawn in addition as in the famous game Karpov vs Hort, 1979 which appeared in Informator as well as in one of Karpov's books of his best games
