Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-25-05  Rowson: This is a beautiful game showing the complex positional play typical of the Ruy Lopez, Closed, Breyer Defense, an opening which Spassky was a great exponent.
Jan-05-10  Rama: White missed 31. Qxb3 Bd5!, wins.
Oct-06-10  ozmikey: Nimzovich would have loved 21...Ne6! - a pawn sacrifice to set up a killer dark square blockade in the centre. Superb game from the young Spassky.
Nov-11-12  kaito95: Rama :31.Qxb3 a4 --> The white rook on f7 is down
Nov-11-12  paul1959: This is a come-from-behind win by Spassky. According to my old ECO , 21... Ne6 is bad (exd4 is =) and White had a big advantage after 23 exd5. 26 Re3 , cutting off the retreat of the Bh6 could have been the error.
