   Ulhumbrus has kibitzed 19640 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Apr-20-15 Botvinnik vs Keres, 1952
 
Ulhumbrus: We can say that the developing move 29 Rc3 is a way of preparing the sacrifice 30 Nf5! On 30...gxf5 31 Rg3+ develops further the rook to the g file and on 31...Ng7 32 Qf6 Black has no way to defend the knight
 
   Apr-20-15 Spassky vs Keres, 1965
 
Ulhumbrus: One small part or phase of the story may be described as follows. With 13...e4 Keres hopes that Spassky will open lines whilst Keres is ahead in development. Spassky does no such thing. He closes the e file by f4 and when Keres tries to open lines by 14....g5 Spassky declines to ...
 
   Apr-20-15 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2015 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: <chancho: What is it about Carlsen that everyone plays a bad game against him? It's inconceivable. > Something like this was said of Lasker. Perhaps Carlsen plays well enough to take better advantage than most players of not only obvious blunders but of slighter errors and ...
 
   Apr-20-15 W So vs R Mamedov, 2015 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: 9...Nh5 places the knight on the rim. However it threatens to go to f4 and gain perhaps the bishop pair by ...Nxe2+ and so induces the concession 10 g3 disturbing the king side pawns. 10...Nxd4 seems inconsistent. 10...f5 seems consistent, otherwise why has Black spent time on ...
 
   Apr-20-15 Kramnik vs Anand, 2015 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: The Russian commentator indicated that this was a theoretical battle and that the opening was known to both players. Kramnik said that the ending looked dangerous for Black but that he would have to check it to see whether White could do better.
 
   Apr-20-15 Adams vs Carlsen, 2015 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: Keene mentions in one book that 3...g6 is Pillsbury's move and gives it an exclamation mark. It may seem that 8 d5 helps White in at least two ways. It exchanges White's bad bishop for Black's good bishop and it exchanges a piece when Black wants to attack on the king side. ...
 
   Apr-19-15 Anand vs A Giri, 2015 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: The computer analysis on the official site indicates that 27 Qh4 instead of 27 Qh2 obstructs the square h4 for the potential fork Nh4
 
   Apr-19-15 Anand vs Carlsen, 2015 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: A look at the computer analysis on the official site suggests that Anand did not make his extra pawn on the king side count in the right way. The general rule is to push the pawn which is unopposed. In the present case that means the f pawn. Thus 31 f4 is better than 31 g4 and 32 ...
 
   Apr-18-15 W So vs A Giri, 2015 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: After 6 Kf1 White has lost the right to castle but he has more space and Black has not found safety yet either. One question is which player will manage to complete his development first.
 
   Apr-09-15 Robson vs W So, 2015
 
Ulhumbrus: Instead of 19...Qd8 19...Bf5 offers to exchange the white squared bishops
