   Sep-18-18 Smyslov vs Stahlberg, 1953
Ulhumbrus: In his book on the tournament - perhaps the best tournament book ever written - Bronstein gives a combination after 20...fxe5 in reply to 20 Ne5 which he says is useful to know about. The combination goes 21 Qg5+ Kh8 22 Qf6+ Kg8 23 Re3 Rf8-e8 24 Qh6!! Kh8 25 Rg3 Rg8 26 Qf6+ and ...
   Sep-02-18 Anand - Carlsen World Championship (2013)
Ulhumbrus: I believe that Anand's team made a very serious mistake of omission although they could not help it as they did not know nearly as much chess as Anand did. More specifically they omitted to propose to FIDE that the old fashioned adjournments be brought back with computers, ...
   Aug-31-18 Carlsen vs Nakamura, 2018 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: <ex0duz: ...Even if he did get 10,000 more from directly throwing a game vs Carlsen, I still don't think he would do it. He probably hates losing to Carlsen more than any other player, and I doubt he would willingly give away more rating even if it is for 10,000...> I am ...
   Aug-28-18 6th Sinquefield Cup (2018) (replies)
Ulhumbrus: This is from <The sixth edition of the Sinquefield Cup had an unprecedented finish. Levon Aronian defeated Alexander Grischuk in a memorable game, while Magnus Carlsen got a 97-move victory over Hikaru Nakamura. Therefore, Aronian, Carlsen and Fabiano Caruana ...
   Aug-27-18 Caruana vs Anand, 2018
Ulhumbrus: 12 0-0 appears to make no attempt to stop the advance ...d4 and this suggests 12...d4
   Aug-27-18 Grischuk vs W So, 2018
Ulhumbrus: 1 f4 displaces a defender of e4 as well as the king side and 2...b6 prepares to develop a bishop on to the long diagonal where it attacks both. Instead of 6...0-0 it may be promising as well as interesting to prepare to castle on the queen side, considering that White's opening ...
   Aug-26-18 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: The computer evaluations ( as well as eg the comments of GM Maurice Ashley) suggest that 27 Ng4? instead of an immediate 27 f6! lets slip at least some of White's advantage. Carlsen said in an interview that he had thought that 27 f6 might be right. Perhaps he turned it down in ...
   Aug-26-18 W So vs Anand, 2018 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: One alternative to 23...Bg6 is 23...Rac8 getting the queen's rook out and occupying the c file. Then White can either let Black take the c file or agree to exchange pieces on it. The more pieces get exchanged the greater is the value of Black's bishop pair and the lesser is the ...
   Aug-25-18 Caruana vs Karjakin, 2018 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: The sudden rise in the computer evaluation for white after the move 27...f6 suggests that 27...f6?? is a blunder whoch loses immediately after the skewer 28 Rd1!
   Aug-24-18 Grischuk vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: In his interview with GM Maurice Ashley GM Grischuk said something that seems perhaps instructive as well as interesting. He said that he tried to stop all of Carlsen's counter-play or all of Carlsen's counter-attacks and the result was that he lost his advantage.
