   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
 
   Jan-18-17 Carlsen vs Wei Yi, 2017 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: < Fusilli: <thegoodanarchist> Good summary! The question is: how does he so smoothly transition from 1 to 3? He simply outplays most GMs out there with what (in retrospect) look like simple, straightforward plans/moves. In that sense, he reminds me of Fischer, albeit ...
 
   Jan-18-17 Van Wely vs W So, 2017 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: After 9 cxd5 Qxb3 10 axb3 White's doubled pawns appeared to become a liability instead of an asset. There may be some positions in which ...Qxb3 is inadvisable but this, it seems, was not one of them.
 
   Jan-04-17 W So vs Kasparov, 2016 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: After 18 Rfd1 castling by 18...0-0 walks into a discovered check, but at least it castles. On 19 Nc4xe5+ Kh8 Black seems to stand badly, perhaps badly enough to lose, but not as badly as in the game after 25 Bxe7 when he resigns at once.
 
   Dec-19-16 Aronian vs Topalov, 2016 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: After 43 Rc7 Black has the d file, the long diagonal and pawns on e4 and d3. How is he to attack? With 43...h5!! Topalov plays the choice of the computer and shows his strength, recognizing and making use of yet another asset, White's weak white squares, threatening to advance the
 
   Dec-19-16 A Giri vs Caruana, 2016 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: 15 axb4 concedes the bishop pair. One justification for 17...a5 instead of 17...Bb5 is that after 17...Bb5 White has not played Ne5 yet and so can attack the bishop by Nd4 instead. After 17...a5 18 Ne5 Bb5 the knight does not attack the bishop. 27...Bxd4 concedes the superior ...
 
   Dec-19-16 Adams vs Nakamura, 2016
 
Ulhumbrus: 20 Nh4 makes a concession, perhaps not taking the e file by Re1 because then Black can offer exchanges by ...Re8. However Nakamura can't avoid them after Adams gets ready to occupy the e file.
 
   Dec-19-16 Anand vs Kramnik, 2016
 
Ulhumbrus: 11...h6 disturbs the king side pawns without necessity as does 12 h3. Instead of 12 h3, 12 Ne5 offers an exchange of pieces. With the hanging pawns Black will want to avoid exchanges and this suggests that White can take ground by offering them. Instead of 21 Be5, 21 Bh4 pins the ...
 
   Dec-19-16 W So vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2016 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: Instead of moving a pawn in the opening with 8...dxc4, 8...Be6 maintains the centre with a developing move
