Aug-02-07  talisman: no k-bitzing for this very historic game? this brings spassky dangerously close, 4-5 advantage korchnoi.i cannot believe spassky would be guilty of anything unsportsmanlike.looking forward to getting keene's book on this match for more information.
Sep-17-10  DoubtingThomas: ...accurate or otherwise.
Sep-17-10  paavoh: A wonderful finish by Spassky.
Aug-07-12  Everett: Nice zig-zag starting with White's 56th
May-21-14  Howard: This made the late Gligoric's Game of the Month column back in the summer of 1978, in Chess Life and Review.
Oct-27-14  Ulhumbrus: After 20 Kg2 Black's c4 pawn seems exposed to attack. An alternative to 20...Na5 is 20...Nb4 heading for d5 and on 21 d5 Bc5 attacks White's pinned bishop on e3

I thought the same thing. He used precise technique to sew up the win.

Jan-21-16  Joker2048: What a great finish by spassky wonderfull..
Jan-21-16  RookFile: The whole game was a masterpiece. I know I wouldn't want to have the black pieces, it looked like torture the whole way for black.
Jan-22-16  Joker2048: I agree with you rookfile..
Spassky absolutely control the game and it was beautiful play by Boris.
Mar-04-16  edubueno: I would like to comment Ulhumbrus remarks, 20...Nb4, that is much more interesting. However 21 d5! has to be answered by 21... De5, since 21...Ac5 allows 22 Dxc4!
