Oct-26-09  ToTheDeath: What a shellacking!

Development development development.

May-28-11  Dr. Pipit Wagtail: What a nice game to play through. Everything flows so naturally for Spassky. I imagine that's how it is for the great ones.
Apr-08-15  A.T PhoneHome: As has been stated on another game between Mikenas and Spassky, Mr. Mikenas usually brought the best out of Spassky; their lifetime score vs. each other supports this.

In general though, at this time Spassky was very hard to beat!
