Apr-06-15  A.T PhoneHome: 17...Nxg4 is a nice sacrifice! Spassky saw that he would need to clear the g-file in order to create a decisive attack along g- and h-file. Once Spassky got his Rooks to those files, the end was near.

Awesome stuff here!

  Fusilli: Brilliant attack that starts with the very enterprising 10...g5.
