Jan-26-14  GREYSTRIPE: Here in this supine-forward, Spassky*& makes clear the Rooks-Holds-Long-Game_Standard. Spassky*& is strong with the Ottomans and Rooks Holds-Gains. The first-ranks made for Rook-Advance-with-Holds-Centers and had no trouble with the opponent making no-squares in their position as it helped Spassky*& to Hold-Centers-Gains. The endurance-factor in a game of chess-of-note~*& makes for a strong mind of chess for chess-play. Rooks-and-Bishops are actually a strength of Spassky*& though many people study his pawns--no harm to anything good.

  zydeco: Elegant positional win by Spassky who had a very good tournament at the 1957 USSR Championship but was of course overshadowed by Tal.
