   Jul-23-14 Caruana vs Adams, 2014
 
Ulhumbrus: < ex0duz: Can someone tell me what the ideas are on the black side of the Berlin? > Here are three ideas. To some extent Kramnik may have applied all of them in his match against Kasparov at London in 2000 when he won the world championship 1. Black has the bishop pair ...

Ulhumbrus: <PawnSac: < Ulhumbrus: An alternative to 11 h4 is 11 h3 > according to the CG opening database, four moves have been played here... 11. Nf5 11. Bxg4 11. h4 11. h3 statistically h3 is the poorest with no wins shown. I suppose if one is going to play this ...

Ulhumbrus: Instead of 10 d4 in the game M Vachier-Lagrave vs A Giri, 2014 Vachier-Lagrave played 10 Nd5! and on 10...Bd6 11 Re2 c6 12 Ne3 Bc7 13 Nf5 d5 14 Ne7 Kh8 gained the bishop pair by 15 Nc8 Rc8 and went on to win
 
   Jul-19-14 Leko vs Naiditsch, 2014 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: After 9...Qxe7 with Black's c6 and d5 pawns on white squares White has potentially the good bishop in an ending
 
   Jul-19-14 Motylev vs R Wojtaszek, 2014
 
Ulhumbrus: 12 Nxc6 strengthens Black's centre. This suggests 12 Rd1 or 12 Nd4-e2 Instead of 18 g5, 18 h5 places a pawn on a white square 19 e5 appears to begin an unsound attack
 
   Jul-19-14 M Vachier-Lagrave vs A Giri, 2014 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: 15 Nxc8 gains the bishop pair and a permanent advantage. This suggests 9...c6 instead of 9...Ne8
 
   Jul-19-14 Yifan Hou vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2014 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: 17...e5? transposes into a Ruy Lopez Breyer type pawn formation. one better than usual for Black but also offers White a pawn on b5 18 d5? avoids opening the e file for Black's rook on e8 but is it necessary? Instead of this 18 axb5! axb5 19 dxe5 dxe5 20 Bxb5 wins a pawn and on 18

Ulhumbrus: 3...Nd7 avoids exchanging the queen's bishop but also allows White's queen to stay on the central square d4 8...d5?! opens lines in a position where it is White who has a lead in development. Black does not gain in the end sufficient compensation for the pawn
 
   Jul-18-14 Kramnik vs Caruana, 2014 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: On 41 Ne5 Qf1 is mate
 
   Jul-17-14 Caruana vs G Meier, 2014 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: In the position after 35...Rg8 White's king side pawns are able to do useful work by advancing so as to attack the king side whereas Black's central pawns are not able to do as useful work, either by advancing or by remaining where they are. Black's source of counter-play in ...
