May-30-10  abstract: nice game by spassky
May-30-10  BwanaVa: Obviously white has an attack...but what is his follow-up after 27...Ke7
May-30-10  wrap99: I think after Ke7, Rd6 is very strong for white
Apr-07-15  A.T PhoneHome: My guess is Black resigned due to 27...Ke7 28.Qf6+ Ke8 29.Rf1, then 29...Kd7 30.Qf7+ Kd8 31.Qxf8+ Kd7 32.Rf7# mate.

Brilliant attack against the uncastled King.

Jun-17-20  carpovius: <A.T PhoneHome> In your line no mate at all. After 31.Qxf8+ Black plays Kc7 instead of Kd7. Your analysis is as funny as your nickname. Please keep analyzing)))
