   Oct-03-22 Pillsbury vs Lasker, 1896
Ulhumbrus: <WhiteRook48: 26...QD7 27 Qxf5 Rf8 where's the win?> With Black's king deprived of flight squares White checks him on the diagonal h5-e8 by 28 Qg6+ Rf7 29 Qxf7 mate or by 28 Qh5+ Rf7 29 Qxf7 mate.
   Sep-12-22 Nepomniachtchi vs Niemann, 2022
Ulhumbrus: Instead of 16 0-0-0, 16 Ne4 prevents the sacrifice 16...c3 Instead of 22 h4, 22 Kb1 clears the c file for the manoeuvre Rh1-c1-c2-b3 and with the R on b2 covering the a2 pawn this other rook can invade Black's position
   Sep-11-22 Niemann vs Caruana, 2022 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: 18 f4 makes the e3 pawn backward and the e4 square a weakness. Instead of this 18 Nb3 uncovers an attack on the d6 pawn and supports the move c5, whilst removing a potential target for Black's c pawn. After 18 f4 Ng6 19 Kh2 Caruana does not wait for Niemann to organise an attack ...
   Sep-11-22 Aronian vs Nepomniachtchi, 2022 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: The sequel to 12...f5 and the GM comments suggest that White needs to arrange the pawn advance f2- f3 in order to eject the knight on e4 as quickly as possible eg by 13 Nf1 Rf7 14 Nf3-d2 f4 15 f3
   Sep-11-22 Firouzja vs So, 2022 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: 18...Rad8 conforms to the rule <Attend to the worst placed piece unless you can satisfy yourself that you can gain something from an immediate attack> So neglects to do this twice. The computer evaluations and the GM comments suggest that the first time he loses at least a ...
   Sep-11-22 Sinquefield Cup (2022) (replies)
Ulhumbrus: As I know nothing about the royals, I can only guess or speculate about it. One example of a guess is that Queen Elizabeth was a very typical and very recognisable type of Englishwoman, that King Charles is a very typical and very recognisable type of Englishman, that this ...
   Sep-10-22 Niemann vs So, 2022 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: <Chessius the Messius: Our genius completely missed 22. b4=> In other words after having looked unsuccessfully for a satisfactory defence he forgot to look for a counter-attack. However even the greatest player - Capablanca - has made this particular omission eg in the game ...
   Sep-09-22 Aronian vs Vachier-Lagrave, 2022 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: 8...h5 disturbs the king side pawns, It does hinder g4 but it also provides a target for the g pawn. 9...Bxd5 concedes the bishop pair. Perhaps this is one of the openings where any one of a large number of tiny little details indicated by a computer's analysis and evaluations ...
   Sep-09-22 Firouzja vs Mamedyarov, 2022 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: After 8...Qg6 this move has been played before in the game Larsen vs Korchnoi, 1973 and as Black won the latter game this suggests the question of what the differences are between these two games and this also suggests that Firouzja may have looked for - and found - a way to ...
   Sep-07-22 Caruana vs Vachier-Lagrave, 2022 (replies)
Ulhumbrus: After 23 Qxg4 Black may like to free his bishop by the pawn sacrifice ...d5 but for the moment his rook needs defending, and 23...f6 defends the rook. After 24 Qh2 the pawn sacrifice 24..d5 to free Black's bishop seems consistent, after Black has removed the White queen from her ...
