   Sep-15-14 Aronian vs Ponomariov, 2014 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: As 14...b5 gives Aronian the superior pawn formation after 15 ab cb . On the other hand if Black tries to prepare the advance ...b5 by 14...a6 White can fix the b pawn by 15 a5. this suggests preparing the advance ...b5 by 14...b6 and 15...a6
 
   Sep-15-14 Vallejo-Pons vs Aronian, 2014
 
Ulhumbrus: The piece sacrifice prepared by 13 e4 would be brilliant if it were to work but unfortunately for White Black can decline it and Aronian does decline it. The computer evaluations suggest that the pawn sacrifice 25...g3+? instead of 25...Rxf4+ lets slip Black's advantage, and that ...
 
   Sep-15-14 Anand vs Ponomariov, 2014 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: 6 h3 (and even more so 9 g4) disturbs the king side pawns and amounts to a declaration that White is going to castle on the queen side. This suggests ...c5 instead of 6...e5 eg 6...b6 7 Be3 c5 One question which may be asked of the move 9...Nc5 is this: Is this the best way to ...
 
   Sep-07-14 Nakamura vs Caruana, 2014 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: One objection to 10 cxd5 was suggested by a comment from Ashley. He said that after Nxg6 Black would have three minor pieces able to attack black squares to White's two. The capture 10 cxd5 clears the square c6 for Black's N from which to attack the black square d4. This suggests ...
 
   Sep-06-14 Aronian vs Caruana, 2014 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: After the exchange of queens the game may head for a draw.
 
   Sep-05-14 Caruana vs Nakamura, 2014 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: A Berlin wall. Perhaps Nakamura wants to know how Caruana will handle the white side of it.
 
   Sep-05-14 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2014 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: Looking at the position presently after 16...Bd7 White appears to have not just a slight positional advantage as I thought earlier but an overwhelming positional advantage. Partly because of Black's badly placed knight on b6 as <Luzhin> pointed out White's advantage appears ...
 
   Sep-05-14 Hikaru Nakamura (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: On the subject of playing against Carlsen it may be useful for Nakamura to hear what Caruana says he did: he just played as normal. If Nakamura tries to play differently because of his past score he is not being objective.
 
   Sep-04-14 M Vachier-Lagrave vs Caruana, 2014 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: Vachier-Lagrave said that when he had played 14 Qa4 he had overlooked that after 14...Qh4 15 0-0 Black could play 15...Nf6 and he had then panicked.
 
   Sep-04-14 Carlsen vs Nakamura, 2014 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: One justification for 10...e5 is that it opens lines after White has undeveloped his QN by 9 Nb1. The counter-objection is that Black is no better developed than White. The comments by the American commentators ( Ashley, Seirawan, Shahade) suggest that at the time Nakamura chose ...
