|Oct-12-06|| ||syracrophy: What a beautiful game!
25.Bxg7! <25...Bxg7 26.Ne7+ wins the queen>
25...Qxd5 <The last try. 26.cxd5? Rc1+ 27.Qe1 Rxe1+ 28.Rxe1 Bxg7 wins for Black>
26.Nh6+! <The idea of all the combination!>26...Kxg7 27.Qg4+! <The definitive move. 27...Kh8 28.Qg8#; 27...Kf6 28.Ng8#; 27...Kxh6 28.Rh3+ Qh5 29.Rxh5#>
|Oct-15-09|| ||parisattack: This was the game which gave me the idea for the Spassky Battery motif. Three or more pieces in the central squares - if only for one or two moves - exert a devastating influence across the board.|
Like Kmoch, I've typed and sub-typed then - minor/major pieces, four central squares/six/eight verticals, six/eight horizontals (as here), how many piece contiguous. I have close to 200 examples now. Much more common in QP games than KP games. Geller,Stein, Keres, Ivanchuk have quite a few...seems to be a Power Player thing.

|Aug-16-13|| ||offramp: Spassky, the master of attack, looks like he's about to launch his attack on a few occasions. But he waits until he knows he'll succeed.|
|Aug-16-13|| ||Sem: If you fast click through the game, you'll see that Black is only busy defending himself.|
|Aug-16-13|| ||JohnBoy: Quick finish after 25...Qxc4?|
|Aug-16-13|| ||Tacitus: After 25...Qxc4 then Nh6+ and mate in a few.|
|Aug-16-13|| ||morfishine: There's something about a Spassky Brilliancy
|Aug-16-13|| ||Abdel Irada: Black has a lange weg to go before he can defeat Spassky.|
|Aug-16-13|| ||JohnBoy: <Tacitus: After 25...Qxc4 then Nh6+ and mate in a few.> - to finish this up, 25...Qxc4 26.Nh6+ Kxg7 27.Rg3+ followed by mate on g8, h5 or e5. This one is not posted at 3am from a phone during a bout of insomnia...|

Of course not. Nor will it have anything to do with your periodic bouts of narcolepsy this evening.
|Aug-16-13|| ||kevin86: How about these mates after black's next move:27...♔h8 28 ♕g8#|
27...♔xh6 28 ♖h3+ and mate next or
27... ♔f6 28 ♘h8# or even 27...about anything 28 cxd5 ♖c1 and white is soon mated!
|Aug-16-13|| ||Nezhmetdinov: <parisattack> This kind of affair would be the Ivanchuk battery: Ivanchuk vs V Chuchelov, 2005|
|Aug-16-13|| ||EvanTheTerrible: A great finish.|

Hehe...Well, we know Chucky goes his own way.
(Thanks for pointing out the game!)
|Apr-11-15|| ||A.T PhoneHome: I scrolled through "Boris Spassky's 400 Selected Games" game collection here and saw this game with K Langeweg as Black. Then I saw the pun and wondered "what's the funny part?" and only THEN I read the full name of Mr. Langeweg...|
My eyes, I can see it clearly now! This is a wonderful attacking game by Spassky in his signature style by the way.
