   Jul-02-22 Ding Liren vs Radjabov, 2022 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: 10 Bxa6 moves the bishop a second time and concedes the bishop pair. 15 h3 disturbs the king side pawns. On the other hand 15 Ng3 makes it easier for Black to play ...d4. This is a sign that things have gone wrong for White. 19 f3 weakens the e pawn and one explanation is that on ...
 
   Jul-01-22 Kasparov vs Petrosian, 1983
 
Ulhumbrus: 19...dc concedes the centre. This suggests that it is Petrosian (instead of his opponent) whose patience runs out first. One example of a reason is that Petrosian underestimated Kasparov.
 
   Jul-01-22 Nakamura vs Firouzja, 2022 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: 15...Nf5 obstructs Black's f pawn. An alternative is 15...Bg7
 
   Jul-01-22 Firouzja vs Nepomniachtchi, 2022 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: Firouzja conducted one of the best bullet chess style attacks in the world but unfortunately for him Nepomniachtchi conducted one of the best classical chess style defences in the world, sacrificing a piece for two pawns but also exposing White's position enough for White to be ...
 
   Jul-01-22 Caruana vs Ding Liren, 2022 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: If after 18 Ng7 the knight achieves little and has to withdraw an alternative is 18 Ne3 with f4 to follow later Ding Liren outplayed Caruana, either because Ding Liren played better overall and made fewer mistakes or because Caruana mis-managed his clock and then lacked time to ...
 
   Jul-01-22 Duda vs Caruana, 2022 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: 10 Bxe6?! opens the f file for Black and strengthens Black's centre. The e6 pawn will now keep White's knights out of d5 and f5 while Black's knights are not excluded from d4 or f4. 11...Nh5?! may be premature. Black needs all of his pieces to contribute to his attack and those ...
 
   Jun-28-22 Ding Liren vs Duda, 2022 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: After 10 d4 if the move Bf4 counts as a threat one alternative to 10...Bb7 is 10...Bd6. One alternative to 14...Qc7 is 14...Qe7. Then if White proceeds as in the game after 14...Qe7 15 Rd4 O-O 16 Rad1 Rfc8 ( instead of 16...Rac8) 17 Qd2 Nf8 18 Qf4 Ne8 keeps the rooks out of both ...
 
   Jun-28-22 Caruana vs Nepomniachtchi, 2022 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: <Atterdag> I can think of one argument to support the taking of risks: if Caruana was likely to lose the match unless he steered for uncertain positions what had he to lose? On the other hand I am not sure that Caruana's strategy failed him in the match that he lost: It ...
 
   Jun-27-22 Radjabov vs Nakamura, 2022 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: Instead of 6...d5, 6...Qe7 may be sufficient. One alternative to 10...Na7 is 10..Nd8 with ...c6 to follow If after 12...Ba7 the win of Black's a pawn by Bb5, Bxc6 and Nxa5 can be called a potential threat one alternative is 12...Bd6.
 
   Jun-27-22 Firouzja vs Rapport, 2022 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: Instead of 9...d6, 9...0-0 prepares to answer the potential threat of f2-f4 by ...d5. If 20...Qxb2 gives White time to prevent Black from castling by Qf2 and Bc5, 20...Qe5 may be more advisable.
