   Ulhumbrus has kibitzed 20593 times to chessgames   [more...]
   May-22-16 Fischer vs Bronstein, 1958
Ulhumbrus: After 29...Bc4 Black has the benefit of an extra pawn on the king side. This suggests that Black is advised to advance his king side pawns.
   May-17-16 Marshall vs Lasker, 1907
Ulhumbrus: Although 11...Qc7 takes a step towards the check ...Qa5+ which seems to inconvenience White, it moves the queen a second time and gets ready to move the queen a third time while Black's QB and QN are still undeveloped. How can this be right? One alternative which this suggests is ...
   May-15-16 Botvinnik vs Bronstein, 1951
Ulhumbrus: White does nothing to make progress, whereupon Black keeps doing a little to make progress and proceeds to win
   May-10-16 Karjakin vs Svidler, 2016 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: If one is going to look for the reasons why White lost - or why Black could have lost, as he has on occasion - consider the following question: After 12 a5 which of the a pawns will become a target for the opponent, White's a5 pawn or Black's a6 pawn? Let us consider a few points ...
   May-07-16 Averbakh vs Gligoric, 1953
Ulhumbrus: <Peligroso Patzer: Najdorf in <Zürich 1953: 15 Contenders for the World Chess Championship>, by NAJDORF, Miguel, tr. by Kingston, Taylor, Russell Enterprises, Inc. ©2012, at p. 87, gives <33. Rb7> the annotation “?” in the following position: His obscure (at least
   May-06-16 Kramnik vs S Sjugirov, 2016 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: After 3...d5 Black, at the very least, has been relieved of the difficulties which he faces normally in the way of equalization Instead of 4...Bg7, 4..e6 attacks the d5 pawn before White can start to reinforce it by moves such as Bc4, Nc3 and Qc3. Black may have underestimated ...
   May-05-16 Nakamura vs J Xiong, 2016 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: < Rookiepawn: <Ulhumbrus: Black kept his c7 pawn back. Perhaps he needed to find a way to advance it to c5 or even to c6.> Not an expert here, but my guess is that a way to advance a pawn to c5 or even c6 is to grab it and put it in the desired position. Another way is to
   May-04-16 Svidler vs Kramnik, 2016 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: 16...a6! transforms Black's b pawn from a target into a weapon and White's b pawn from a weapon into a target. This suggests that 16 Qb2? is an error which loses an important tempo and that 16 a6 is necessary. 17 Nxc6 may be necessary because after 17 Nd3 Ba8 White'a a5 pawn and ...
   May-01-16 Aronian vs Carlsen, 2016 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: <Eyal: Interestingly, during the game itself Svidler - who was doing the live commentary with Gustafsson - was very skeptical about Black's play almost from the very beginning; already after 4...g6 he started with his "very curious, very curious" remarks, which he usually says ...
   Apr-30-16 Carlsen vs Eljanov, 2016 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: <drleper: <Ulhumbrus: <chancho: <Ulhumbrus> You're trolling <keypusher>, admit it.> I cannot admit that which is not true> Is it possible that Ulhumbrus underestimated chancho? ;)> I put it to you that you are not trolling but speaking in jest
