May-13-05  TigerPawns: this is the game from the bond movie "from russia with love", i believe.
May-13-05  abcpokerboy: Tigerpawns, the bond movie game was spassky-bronstein 1960 ussr championship. There were a couple of pawns removed from the position in the film because the director felt they cluttered the board. With those pawns removed spassky's combination in that game would not have worked.
Oct-19-09  Everett: 16..Rd8?! Wouldn't 16..Nd7 or 16..Na6 be more prudent, getting this Q-side in the game?
Oct-19-09  Everett: Black can consider 10..f6 11.Bf4 f5 instead of 10..e3, which simply serves to exchange his only developed and best piece. This may be on the board improvisation, but it certainly seems dubious.
Oct-26-09  ToTheDeath: 16...Nd7 would lose to 17.e4. 16..Na6 looks ok.

Another great example of Spassky's attacking chess.

Mar-26-15  A.T PhoneHome: Mate to follow shortly; 29...Kg4 30.Rf4#.

Two imaginative geniuses at it! Spassky getting the full point this time.

Nov-29-16  edubueno: Paliza. DB muy nervioso.
