Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-02-13  YoGoSuN: Seeing Spassky's Bd1 surprised me at first, but when I thought about it he probably thought it an asset to keep the bishops, as Nb4 would then have been annoying. And that LSB really turns out to be a great piece.

It's also incredible to see how Spassky's superior positional understanding sets up the Bxd5+! shot at the end. All of his moves, starting with Nxf6+! are subtle in indirectly put Black's king under a lot of pressure. Spassky expertly traps Black's king in the middle. A true beauty!

  Retireborn: One supposes that Spassky had seen this game:-

J Trapl vs E Perez Gonsalves, 1961

and was well-prepared for this opponent.
