   Ulhumbrus has kibitzed 20767 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Sep-27-16 Svidler vs I Nepomniachtchi, 2016 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: Here is a link to the live games display on the chess24 website:
   Sep-26-16 A Giri vs Anand, 2016 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: <What's wrong with draws?> They are boring for spectators who happen to be interested only in wins. However that does not really answer your question, which is what is wrong with them. The answer is, nothing if they are arrived at by the best play on both sides.
   Sep-26-16 Aronian vs Gelfand, 2016 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: Now the chess24 website gives the result as a draw. Here is the link:
   Sep-19-16 Karpov vs Portisch, 1982
Ulhumbrus: GM Michael Stean placed the question mark on the move 20...f4 as it allowed Black's king side pawn majority to get blockaded.
   Sep-13-16 Caruana vs Bareev, 2016 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: Instead of 12...Be7, 12...c5 attacks the b4 pawn and the capture 13 bxc5 smashes White's queen side
   Sep-12-16 Harikrishna vs Karjakin, 2016 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: After 26...Qf5 the Black g6 pawn is overworked. If it has to defend the potential fork Nxh6+ it cannot then also defend the other fork Nhf6+
   Sep-12-16 Kramnik vs Radjabov, 2016 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: 20...Nxe4 opens the e file and pins potentially the e5 pawn and as a result after 21 cd Nxd6 Kramnik is able to break Black's king side pawn structure by 22 Bxf4 followed by 23 Nc4xe5 after which Kramnik gains a winning king side attack.
   Sep-12-16 Kramnik vs B Adhiban, 2016 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: 11...Bxf3 parts with the biahop pair, never an asset to concede lightly.
   Sep-12-16 Carlsen vs E Ghaem Maghami, 2016 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: Instead of 10...Bxc6, one justification for 10...bxc6 is that White has played d4 so that Black is able to undouble his c pawns. Instead of 11...Qc7, 11...Nd7 challenges the N on e5 at once. 12..h6 disturbs the king side pawns without necessity. Instead of this 12...Qe7 at once ...
   Sep-11-16 J L Hammer vs Nakamura, 2016 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: Perhaps a good player is one whose opponents are out of form. Because Carlsen appears to do this to his opponents it obscures the fact that they ( eg someone as strong as Nakamura) are also capable of doing it to their opponents (including occasionally even Carlsen)
