   Aug-22-16 Aronian vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2016
 
Ulhumbrus: Instead of 19 Nxe2, 19 Qxe2 avoids exchanging queens and seems consistent, having sacrificed a pawn
 
   Aug-15-16 Nakamura vs Ding Liren, 2016 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: One of Nakamura's comments suggests that 16...Rg8?! is Black's main mistake because after this the black king cannot find safety in any part of the board, and this is a serious liability indeed, one whose value to the opponent can approach that of a queen on occasion. In reply ...
 
   Aug-15-16 M Vachier-Lagrave vs W So, 2016
 
Ulhumbrus: Kasparov suggested that it was a mistake for Vachier-Lagrave to choose the Berlin wall because in a game which he had to win he needed an opening which he felt familiar and comfortable with. Kasparov said - when the subject was brought up of his final game against Karpov in 1987 ...
 
   Aug-15-16 Caruana vs A Giri, 2016
 
Ulhumbrus: Kasparov said in the commentary box, speaking of the position after 26 Kh3, that Black's rooks lacked space, that the advance of White's g pawn to support a mating attack was a dangerous threat, and that after being advanced the g pawn would do the work of an extra piece. ...
 
   Aug-15-16 Svidler vs Anand, 2016
 
Ulhumbrus: One alternative to 12...f5 is 12...f6, placing the pawn on a black square. Following 12...f6 one move which the computer suggests for Black is ...c5 placing another pawn on a black square.
 
   Aug-15-16 Topalov vs Aronian, 2016 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: Aronian may have not expected 10 Ng5. 10...Bb6 avoids parting with the bishop pair. Instead of 80 Rd5, 80 Re2 prevents the knight from getting back close to the Black king.
 
   Aug-14-16 W So vs Topalov, 2016 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: 28 Na4 takes a step away from e4. This suggests 28...Qd6 followed by ...Bc7
 
   Aug-14-16 Aronian vs Nakamura, 2016
 
Ulhumbrus: Can one suggest what is wrong with Black's game after 19...b6? One answer is this: White's pieces enjoy a lead of two moves in development but in effect four moves if we consider that White's rooks have reached the open c and d files whilst Black's rooks have not.
 
   Aug-14-16 A Giri vs Svidler, 2016 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: Instead of 16 Ne5, 16 Re1 unpins the N on f3. If the attack on the a file by 23 Rda2 is going to fail this suggests playing to occupy the d file instead 23 f4 Instead of 24 f4, 24 Bc3 seems consistent, otherwise why has White doubled his rooks on the a pawn? 29 Bc6 is an ...
 
   Aug-13-16 Anand vs Topalov, 2016 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: The computer analysis suggests that Black can't do much to stop f5 or to attack White's queen side pawns but he can do a lot to attack White's king.
