   Feb-23-17 Grischuk vs Eljanov, 2017
Ulhumbrus: 8...Bf5? leaves the b7 pawn undefended and invites 9 Qb3! pinning the bishop on b4 to the pawn on b7 as well as attacking the bishop. 9...Bxc3 removes the bishop with tempo but it also concedes the bishop pair and the recapture 10 bxc3 strengthens White's centre.
   Feb-21-17 Ding Liren vs R Rapport, 2017 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: If White is able to reply to 11...Qc8 with 12 e4 this suggests 11...f5
   Feb-21-17 R Rapport vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2017
Ulhumbrus: If after 20 0-0 Black gains the attack on the king side instead of White this is one justification for 20 0-0-0 instead.
   Feb-21-17 Nakamura vs R Rapport, 2017 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: 2...Nc6?! develops the knight but also obstructs the c pawn 4...Bxf3? doubles White's f pawn but it concedes the bishop pair and also strengthens White's centre 8...Bxc3? concedes the second bishop and strengthens further White's centre After 9 bxc3 Black has a lead in development
   Jan-29-17 Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2017 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: An alternative to 24...Nc5 is 24...Nd7-f8 clearing the square d7 for the manoeuvre Ra8-d8-d7 An alternative to 26...Qg6 allowing the fork Ne7 is 26...Nd7-f8 clearing the square d7 for the manoeuvre Ra8-d8-d7
   Jan-29-17 I Nepomniachtchi vs W So, 2017 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: So has a queen and a pawn for a rook and bishop. Does he have an easy win, a difficult win, a difficult win which becomes easy for him owing to his knowledge and skill, or a difficult win which he makes appear easy after making use of his knowledge and skill? That remains to be ...
   Jan-28-17 Eljanov vs Carlsen, 2017 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: Euwe said of Capablanca something like this, perhaps someone can find the exact words <Whether the ending is won, drawn or lost he simply wins it! That is why he is Capablanca!>
   Jan-26-17 Aronian vs R Rapport, 2017 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: The move 9 Be1 is an undeveloping move and this suggests opening of lines by 10...d5. Moreover the capture 12...Bxd4 takes a valuable central pawn which White has offered and this suggests that the move is correct. Then how can the move 10...d5 be a mistake leading to a winning ...
   Jan-25-17 Carlsen vs Van Wely, 2017 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: 22 Nc5 both attacks the bishop on a6 and discovers an attack on the c6 pawn. This suggests that 19...Qf4 loses a pawn.
   Jan-25-17 W So vs R Wojtaszek, 2017 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: One reason to not play 20...Rfd8 is that if Black keeps clear the square d8, he has the option of the move ...Nd8 in reply to b5.
