   Aug-18-14 Caruana vs Ivanchuk, 2011
Ulhumbrus: Ivanchuk obstructs his own queen by 7...Qe7 instead of getting his king's bishop out first by 7...Bd6. The queen frees the bishop four moves later by 11...Qe6. If this is good for Black it seems a useful thing to know about
   Aug-15-14 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2014 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: The move 14 c4 makes a concession, weakening the b4 square. This is not the only concession which Caruana makes but one can say one thing: Caruana will need to have a good reason for any concession at all which he makes against an opponent like Carlsen. This would also be true if ...
   Aug-14-14 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
Ulhumbrus: <FSR: ... Note that Carlsen was still able to beat Caruana, the world No. 3, as Black playing a Scandinavian, another questionable opening ...> He didn't just beat him. He conceded the bishop pair and greater space to him and then outplayed him. Either that or Caruana ...
   Aug-13-14 E Haag vs Miles, 1975
Ulhumbrus: 26...e4! opens the long diagonal and so prepares to pin the b2 pawn and so prepares the move 30...b3 as with the b2 pawn pinned 31 a3 invites the capture 31...Qxa3+
   Aug-13-14 I Ivanisevic vs Kramnik, 2014
Ulhumbrus: After the move 6 h3, 8...h6! in reply to 8 Bg5 gains the bishop pair. The reason for this is that on 9 Bh4? (as played) 9...g5! 10 Bxg3 Bxg3 dislocates White's king side pawn structure and after 11 fxg3 Nh5! 12 Kf2 White has lost his right to castle. Kramnik may have showed his ...
   Aug-13-14 I Saric vs Carlsen, 2014 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: Carlsen's remarks suggest a simple and adequate explanation: Carlsen was tired, as probably were many other players.
   Aug-12-14 Carlsen vs D Solak, 2014 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: With 30...a4 Black appears to he heading for a masterpiece of a win. With his queen and two bishops placed on the diagonals a2-g8, a1-h8 and b1-h7 respectively and so aimed towards White's king he brings another unit into the attack. However Houdini indicates that with 32...a3+? ...
   Aug-11-14 Chess Olympiad (2014) (replies)
Ulhumbrus: Yes, Solak has gone wrong, unfortunately for him
   Aug-11-14 B Predojevic vs Carlsen, 2014 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: 13 Nb5 obstructs the b pawn. If this can be called a small error it is just such a small error which serves to decrease White's advantage or increase Black's advantage and if White makes a number of choices which are less than the best each one will serve to tilt the scales a ...
   Aug-10-14 Hort vs Petrosian, 1970
Ulhumbrus: Petrosian played this like Botvinnik
