Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-23-08  apexin: nice game.
May-04-09  WhiteRook48: 14...b6?
Apr-04-15  A.T PhoneHome: Nice finishing touch by 21-year-old Spassky in the form of <50.Rb8> ! Now nothing stops that a6-pawn from promoting if I understand it correctly.
Sep-10-16  zydeco: 17...h6? gives life to white's hack attack. 17....Kh8 looks safe.
Sep-11-16  ZonszeinP: Fischer knew this game by heart (among many others) and I think he played 14-...Bd7 in 1972, improving Krogius approach. However, as we all know, he managed to lose all the same
May-04-17  edubueno: 17...h6? parece ser la jugada perdedora.
