   Ulhumbrus has kibitzed 21142 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Apr-25-17 W So vs Mamedyarov, 2017
Ulhumbrus: 16 Ke2 is a sign that things have gone wrong for White, giving up the right to castle
   Apr-25-17 Karjakin vs Adams, 2017
Ulhumbrus: If White can't play Qxb7 that defeats partly the purpose of the fork 9 Qb3
   Apr-18-17 M Bluebaum vs Carlsen, 2017 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: 11 0-0 loses a tempo towards f4. After 11 f4 Bb7 12 Bf3 White's king's bishop does not obstruct White's f pawn. After 11 0-0 Bb7 12 Bf3 White's king's bishop obstructs White's f pawn. If Black can play 22...d5 and so smash the Maroczy bind, it is a sign that White has gone wrong ...
   Apr-18-17 Carlsen vs Aronian, 2017 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: 21...Rxb1 concedes the b file. Instead of this 21..Ne7 begins the plan of ...Ng6 followed by ...h5 and ...h4 and then ...Nf4 if the g3 pawn gets displaced or removed
   Apr-18-17 Yifan Hou vs Carlsen, 2017 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: Suppose that after 23...Rxb6 Yifan Hou needs her knight on d5 instead of her rook. In that case one way is 24 Ne1 heading for d5 via g2 and e3.
   Apr-17-17 G Meier vs Yifan Hou, 2017 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: It seems that Black's hanging pawns became a weapon instead of a target.
   Apr-16-17 I Nepomniachtchi vs Gelfand, 2017
Ulhumbrus: It is not obvious that 9 Qd3!! prepares the invasion 11 Nd5! by preventing, after 11...Nxd5 12 exd5, the move 12...Bf5. It thus enables the move Nd5 to gain the bishop pair.
   Apr-16-17 Nakamura vs I Nepomniachtchi, 2017 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: If after 16...bxc4 Black's pawns are going to become a target instead of a weapon this suggests 16...Nxc5
   Apr-16-17 G Oparin vs Svidler, 2017
Ulhumbrus: 6 h4 looks like a nonsense move but it is up to Black to find a way to benefit from it. The sequel to 8...g6 suggests that White's potential checkmating attack on the h file never gets started: Black is able to invade the centre long before then.
   Apr-16-17 Nakamura vs Svidler, 2017
Ulhumbrus: Instead of an immediate 23...Rxc3 which allows the capture 24 Qxf7+ in reply Svidler's zwischenzug 23...Nf5!! delays the potential capture 24 Qxf7+ thus enabling Black to play 24...Rxc3
