Weird game! Never saw a player play the KGD like that! Great usage of the bishop, pinning the pawn and enabling the rookmove.

Apr-09-07  M.D. Wilson: Spassky lets his bishop do the talking.
Jan-18-09  M.D. Wilson: Yes, this is a strange game, but a good one by Spassky. For Spassky at least, it was a happy ending.
