   Dec-08-19 Aronian vs Carlsen, 2019
Ulhumbrus: It appears that 43 f7 is based on a miscalculation and that Aronian has overlooked 44...Qg6!! leaving the rook on f8 en prise but on a square which can be attacked by ...Kg7 whilst also keeping the white queen under attack. The player only has to be unlucky for a single moment to ...
   Dec-08-19 Ding Liren vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2019 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: In an interview after the game Ding Liren indicated that it was a mistake for Black to combine the pawn advance 8...a5 with the capture 17...Nxd5 because after 18 cxd5 cleared the square c4, Vachier-Lagrave was unable to prevent Ding Liren from gaining the square c4 for Ding ...
   Dec-07-19 M Vachier-Lagrave vs Ding Liren, 2019
Ulhumbrus: < goodevans: Did Ding miss a win here or was it always a draw?> The commentators' remarks suggest that Ding Liren missed a win, but that was partly because Vachier Lagrave did not give up after gaining a lost position. There is a lesson there for other players who may find ...
   Dec-07-19 Carlsen vs Aronian, 2019 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: After 18...Kh8 if White wants to free his knight from having to defend the a5 pawn one alternative is 19 Ra4 followed by 20 Qa1, and another way after 19 Qf3 Rae8 is to double the rooks on the a file 20 Ra4 and Re1-a1. Instead of 29...b6 one alternative is 29...Re7 beginning the ...
   Dec-05-19 M Vachier-Lagrave vs Carlsen, 2019 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: This was the most interesting game in one way. Perhaps this game offers a lesson in the art of evaluation. It may seem that after 15...h6 Black is heading for defeat. However the computer evaluations and the GM comments suggest that Vachier Lagrave's main mistake is 16 Bxf6? and ...
   Dec-05-19 Hartston vs Spassky, 1965 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: < FSR: Wow. That's ballsy - playing the KG against Spassky, the King of the King's Gambit.> Like playing the Najdorf against Fischer or Kasparov
   Nov-29-19 Carlsen vs Anand, 2019 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: 17...f5 seems inconsistent, having played to acquire a pawn centre but then allowing the e pawn to become backward.
   Nov-25-19 Carlsen vs Anand, 2019 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: The commentators indicated that Anand missed 19...g3! keeping the White king out of f2 where the king gained relative safety
   Nov-17-19 J K Duda vs Grischuk, 2019 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: A Russian commentator said that it was not good to combine the move Rc1 with the move a3. This helps to suggest that 11 a3? moves a pawn in the opening. It loses a tempo for development with the White king still to castle. Grischuk's reply 11...Bd7!! makes White's loss of time ...
   Nov-02-19 Navara vs Ivanchuk, 2019 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: 11...a6 weakens the white squares after White has made it more difficult for himself to exchange the dark squared bishops. One example of a possible reason for this is that Black's bishop is more useful for defending the black squares than White's queen's bishop is useful for ...
