   Ulhumbrus has kibitzed 18924 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jul-31-14 D Howell vs Hebden, 2014
Ulhumbrus: 5 de?! relinquishes White's advantage in space. After 7...0-0 the pawn structure resembles that of a Ruy Lopez but with the difference that Black has been able to exchange his d pawn for White's d pawn. Normally in the Ruy Lopez it is not easy for Black to arrange ...d5. The ...
   Jul-30-14 Chess Olympiad (2014) (replies)
Ulhumbrus: <HeMateMe: we thought of putting our board 1 on third board, our second strongest player on board 4 and our number 3 player on fifth board, pretty much sacrificing boards one and two. It can work, but those three guys HAVE to win, one draw and you are screwed. We put our third
   Jul-29-14 O Bernstein vs Lasker, 1909 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: <tamar:... But as you reason, if there is no immediate win by attacking with the major pieces, why move them?> Flattering and modest, but I will point out that you were the one to indicate <...Black's lack of constructive moves.>
   Jul-28-14 R Wojtaszek vs Harikrishna, 2014
Ulhumbrus: <mike1: Ulhumbrus, in yoyr line with 13....g5, what do you intend to play after 14.Nxg5? Bxe2 15.Qxe2 Qxd5 16.Qc2 is not convincing> This could be the reason why Harikrishna did not choose 13...g5. In that case how about 13...f6
   Jul-27-14 Fischer vs Najdorf, 1970
Ulhumbrus: 27 e5 opens lines in a position where White is at least two moves ahead of Black ahead in development After 28 Qxa8 Rxa8 29 fxe5 White's e5 pawn has fixed Black's f7 pawn without becoming vulnerable while his c pawn is passed, and with queens exchanged White's king is less
   Jul-26-14 J Rudd vs Arkell, 2014 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: 14...g6 disturbs the king side pawns. An alternative is 14...Ng6
   Jul-26-14 Arkell vs J Burnett, 2014
Ulhumbrus: Given that White manages to play the pawn advances f3 and e4 if Black cannot respond to 21 h4 with ...g5 this suggests 20...f5 instead of 20...h5
   Jul-26-14 Arkell vs A Brusey, 2014
Ulhumbrus: After 14 Kf1 Black's queen is tied to the defence of the f7 pawn. This suggests 14...f5
   Jul-25-14 Kasparov vs Kramnik, 2000 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: Instead of 7 a4 7 c3 prepares 8 d4. Even when Kramnik chose an eccentric looking defence to the Ruy Lopez Kasparov did not find a way to win. Kramnik had probably prepared it but in an opening such as the Ruy Lopez closed one can imagine one of the great classical players e.g. ...
   Jul-25-14 Kasparov vs Kramnik, 2000
Ulhumbrus: Instead of 18 Nf4 18 e6 advances the pawn to a white square and frees White's dark squared bishop. One can guess what Kasparov's problem is: he wants to win and does not want to give Black drawing chances.
