   Ulhumbrus has kibitzed 19745 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jul-02-15 Hou Yifan vs W So, 2015
Ulhumbrus: The remarks by the commentators on the chess24 site suggested that the pawn advance 6...h6 invites potentially the pawn attack g4 and g5
   Jul-02-15 W So vs Naiditsch, 2015 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: The hanging pawns turned out this time to be a weapon instead of a target. This suggests the question why. 21 Ra1 seems a strange move, undeveloping the rook. Instead of this 21 g3 gains the flight square g2 before doing anything else.
   Jul-02-15 Caruana vs Naiditsch, 2015 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: After 15 Ne4 if we assume that White's N is more valuable than Black's N this suggests 15...Nxe4 16 Bxe4 g6 Instead of 17...Be7, 17...Rfd8 develops the king's rook 19...f6 disturbs the king side pawns without necessity and weakens the e6 pawn which Caruana will make a target three
   Jul-02-15 G Meier vs Caruana, 2015 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: After 52 Qd8+ Kg7 53 Qe7+ Kh6 54 Qf8+ Kg5 55 Qe7+ Kg4 White has run out of checks
   Jul-02-15 Kramnik vs I Nepomniachtchi, 2015 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: 6...d5?! is open to question. Black has got into trouble before by trying ...d5 like this in an English opening eg in the game Petrosian vs Korchnoi, 1962 One alternative to 10...Nb6 is 10...Nc5
   Jul-02-15 Hou Yifan vs Kramnik, 2015
Ulhumbrus: 10 dc?! gains a pawn but increases Black's lead in development. If White can't keep the pawn and Black regains the pawn with advantage, this suggests 10 Ba4 or 10 Bd3
   Jul-02-15 G Meier vs Kramnik, 2015 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: Many exchange sacrifices have been played recently with success. This one fails. In this game White has no bishop after the exchange sacrifice, only his knights. This suggests that in order for the exchange sacrifice to succeed either White needs at least one bishop or else the ...
   Jun-27-15 Aronian vs Nakamura, 2015 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: If 8 d4 and c5 will not give White enough one alternative is 8 Nd5 and Ne2-c3 with b4-b5 to follow
   Jun-26-15 J L Hammer vs Carlsen, 2015 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: <boz: Does Hammer in Norwegian mean the same as the English Hammer. Excuse my ignorance...but I don't even know a single Norwegian word.> It seems so. Here is a link to a google automatic translator website:
   Jun-25-15 Topalov vs Anand, 2015 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: Topalov has learnt a lesson from his last game at Sofia: he does not make an unsound attempt to win. Also here there is no need, as a draw gains him the first prize. Anand is willing to play to win but not unsoundly. The result is a draw.
