Apr-08-15  A.T PhoneHome: That's a beautiful mate! After 26.Qa3, Spassky plays Nxb7.

Wonderful chess!

Mar-01-18  zydeco: 16....0-0-0 looks right.

  woldsmandriffield: 21..Qf8 & 22..f6 were not good defensive moves!

If Black must play ..Qf8, better to wait until White captures on g7 ie 21..Rc8 first.

Jun-09-20  tessathedog: Wonderful imagination. Black plays 23...f5 threatening to fork with ...f4. Spassky manages to ask "what are the possibilities if I just let him do it". And he plays 24 Nc5!!, perhaps saying "go ahead, make my day" as he played it.
Jun-18-20  carpovius: If 25...Kd8 instead of Ke7 then mate anyway 26. Nxb7+ Ke7 27. Qa3#
Jun-27-20  edubueno: La partida está muy por encima del nivel de Osnos. Seguramente Petrosian hubiera ganado con negras jugando 16...g5!
