   Jun-18-21 Alekhine vs Nimzowitsch, 1930
 
Ulhumbrus: After 11 a4 the capture ...Nxb5 can be answered by axb5 fixing Black's a pawn. This suggests not waiting for 11 a4 by 10...Bxb5 11 Bxb5 Nb8-c6 and now 12 b4 may gain White little.
 
   Jun-17-21 Deac vs Aronian, 2021
 
Ulhumbrus: In the position after 57 Nd3 it may seem at first sight that White can just move his knight from e5 and back, place his king on f2 and that Black can't get in. So how does Black make progress? Aronian's answer is a difficult one. It is to find the right way to sacrifice a pawn and
 
   Jun-05-21 Alekhine vs Nimzowitsch, 1927
 
Ulhumbrus: After 31 Kd2 Alekhine has a queen and a pawn for a rook and knight but he has to sweat for over fifty moves in order to win. This brings to mind the saying that the hardest thing of all is to win a won game.
 
   May-27-21 Smyslov vs Petrosian, 1967
 
Ulhumbrus: <beatgiant: In what way is Black behind in development on move 19?> White's king's rook is ahead in development of Black's king's rook < After <22...Qe6> I don't see how Black's king will be "exposed horribly" in the near future.> After 22...Qe6 Black doesn't win
 
   May-24-21 M Steinberg vs Karpov, 1969
 
Ulhumbrus: <beatgiant: <Ulhumbrus> 28. f3 drops a pawn to the desperado ...Bxf3, for no compensation that I can see.> Then White has to seek an alternative earlier. This suggests that 26 Bd6 is a mistake or else 25 Bb8 or else 24 b4.
 
   May-21-21 Karpov vs M Steinberg, 1969 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: After 9 Be3 in the game Keres vs Fischer, 1962 with a similar pawn formation in the centre but not on the queen side Fischer played ...exf4 and in reply to gxf4, ...d5.
 
   May-11-21 M Bertok vs Fischer, 1962
 
Ulhumbrus: With the move 14...Qb7 Fischer delays the move ...Nd7 and he plays it a move later by 15...Nd7, only after his queen has gone to b7. This suggests that in Fischer's opinion an immediate 14...Nd7 will obstruct the way of the black queen to the b7 square, and that Fischer wants the ...
 
   May-10-21 Fischer vs Filip, 1962 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: Fischer plays in effect the white side of a King's Indian pawn formation. His answer is to reply to 16...c5 not with the queen side attack b4 but with 17 dxc6 perhaps with the idea that Black's pawn centre will become a target instead of a weapon. Black's central pawns do fall in ...
 
   May-10-21 V Ciocaltea vs Fischer, 1962
 
Ulhumbrus: With 21 Ne5 Ciocaltea has managed to make his f pawn count by supporting a knight on e5 as well as g5 whereas Fischer's c pawn cannot be used to support a knight on d4, as White's c3 pawn covers that square
 
   May-05-21 Giri vs Nepomniachtchi, 2020
 
Ulhumbrus: Instead of 7 Ndb5, 7 Nb3 was played in the games Korchnoi vs Spassky, 1977 and Korchnoi vs Spassky, 1977
