   Oct-18-21 Caruana vs Swiercz, 2021
 
Ulhumbrus: <LRLeighton> You are right. Black can't answer Nxe5 with ...Nxd5. In that case he may have to settle for 6...Be7.
 
   Oct-18-21 Lenderman vs Caruana, 2021 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: After 14 a4 White prepares to place his knight which is on c3 on b5. With 14...Rc8 Caruana gets ready to preempt that by giving his rook for the knight and the central e pawn. If this is sufficiently promising for Black perhaps White is advised to avoid it by eg 15 Qd2. Apart from
 
   Oct-18-21 N Paikidze vs C Yip, 2021
 
Ulhumbrus: After 12 d5?! Black closes the centre by 12...e5! and then concentrates on a king side attack. She can afford to advance her king side pawns because she has not castled there and the centre is closed against retaliation there. One alternative is 12 Ne2 followed by c3. This ...
 
   Oct-17-21 C Yip vs A Eswaran, 2021 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: GM Ashley indicated that in this game and for the past few games Carissa Yip was winning by making one strong direct attacking move after another. Moreover her choices of attacking moves beginning with 22 d5! were mostly those which the computer used by the GM commentators ...
 
   Oct-16-21 Swiercz vs Burke, 2021
 
Ulhumbrus: If 10 Nxg5 does not work this suggests organising the pin Bg5 in some other way eg by waiting until Black has castled eg 8 Qe2 0-0 and now 9 Ng5 h6 10 Bh4 g5 11 Nxg5 hxg5 12 Bxg5
 
   Oct-16-21 Naroditsky vs Xiong, 2021
 
Ulhumbrus: If after 6 Bb2 it is more important for Black to play ...Ne4 than it is important for Black to prevent Ne5 this suggests 6...Bb7 so that after 7 Bd3 cd 8 ed Ne4 becomes possible in time to play ...f5 as in the game Bogoljubov vs Botvinnik, 1936 However in that game the move ...Ne4
 
   Oct-16-21 Xiong vs Sevian, 2021
 
Ulhumbrus: After 8 Qb3 Black will be able to attack the white queen by ...Nc5 following the capture ...cxd4. Then the white queen is going to lose a lot of time moving from one square to another and that may enable Black to appropriate White's opening advantage. One alternative is 8 Qc2.
 
   Oct-16-21 Swiercz vs Naroditsky, 2021
 
Ulhumbrus: Instead of 35...Ra5 35 ...Bf2 ties a piece of lesser value to the defence of the c pawn and the bishop may go to d4.
 
   Oct-16-21 Shankland vs Burke, 2021
 
Ulhumbrus: 9...Rb8 invites 10 Nc7+ and after eg 10...Kd8 11 Nb5 a6 12 Nc3 the knight has sacrificed four tempi but the black queen's rook has consumed one tempo and the black king has sacrificed his right to castle and perhaps his safety as well.
 
   Oct-16-21 Burke vs So, 2021
 
Ulhumbrus: One justification for 5 Bg5 instead of 5 c3 Nbd2 is that Black has developed his king's bishop to c5 instead of to e7 and so has invited this pin. Then one question is whether after 5...h6 6 Bh4 Black can get away with 6...g5. If Black can, White has to seek an alternative while ...
