The "Un-stoppable Boris of Nature," by A.J.G.
Compiled by LIFE Master AJ

Boris Spassky has always been one of my favorite players ... I thought it would be good to do a collection of his games.

A few of these I have deeply annotated on various websites, be sure to check the kibitzes for the links or the notes.
