Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-07-07  Grega: Spassky 20th move is awesome, you guys really should look at it. A very fine game in every aspect of the game.
Apr-02-15  A.T PhoneHome: <Grega> <20.Ba6> is quite a beauty indeed, two separate pins but I guess you're seeing it deeper than me! (I admittedly am very green in chess so perhaps I am not doing justice to your admiration of 20.Ba6)

It's funny to compare queenside after <20.Ba6> and after <26.Bd4>; all that space! And after <22.Nb6> Spassky is exploiting the same pin from position after <17.Qa4> where that d7 Knight is pinned to Black King.

Feb-13-16  peterh99: What happens after 20 .. RxA6? Qb5, RR7; Nd6+, Kf8; NxB7, RxB7; Qf6 threatening BD6 and QxR? Spassky's idea for breaking through on the Queenside is just conjured out of thin air, seemingly!
