   Oct-21-19 Nakamura vs Caruana, 2019 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: 17...Bxe5 gives White the bishop pair, never a concession to make lightly.
   Oct-20-19 Nakamura vs Aronian, 2019 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: <eternaloptimist: <Ulhumbrus> All ♖ & ♙ endings are definitely not drawn especially double ♖ endings. > Indeed they are not. The saying that <all rook and pawn endings are drawn> is not to be taken literally. As it happens I have not said that ...
   Oct-20-19 Caruana vs Aronian, 2019
Ulhumbrus: If 12 d4 does not lead to an advantage one alternative is 12 d3 keeping Black's e pawn back and getting ready for Nc5
   Oct-20-19 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2019
Ulhumbrus: One alternative to 4...Bc5 is 4...Bb4. One justification for it is that after 4...Bc5 5 Nxe5 Nxe5 6 d4 Bb4 Black has moved the bishop twice in the opening. If the move 4...Bc5 is better the justification by itself becomes insufficient. Instead of 9...Ba5 one justification for ...
   Oct-20-19 K Alekseenko vs Anand, 2019
Ulhumbrus: The move 14 Nxb6 gains the bishop pair. This suggests that after 11 Na3 the move 12 Nc4 counts as a potential threat and this suggests in turn that after 9...Bb6 the manoeuvre Nb1-a3-c4 counts as a potential threat.
   Oct-18-19 Grischuk vs Caruana, 2019 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: 17...g6 keeps White's king bishop out of play
   Oct-15-19 Carlsen vs Shirov, 2019 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: The computer evaluations suggest that after the pawn advance 10...f5 Carlsen actually has the upper hand throughout the game. The computer evaluations suggest that 16...b6 which disturbs the queen side pawn formation increases White's advantage and that it is better to keep this ...
   Oct-14-19 Spassky vs Keres, 1965
Ulhumbrus: If on 22...Nb7 23 b4 puts the N out of play one alternative is 22...Nc6
   Oct-14-19 McShane vs Caruana, 2019 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: My present guess is a draw although I don't rule out the possibility that White may win by means of scores of moves which are incomprehensible to an ordinary player.
   Oct-13-19 McShane vs Lu Shanglei, 2019 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: One point of 11 Nd5 is that White's queen is defended by the bishop on e3 so it can afford to advance to e7 and take Black's queen's bishop, and so gain the bishop pair. This costs time but Black does not manage to make it count.
