Jul-23-04  Papablanca: Spassky threatens
27 ... Qxa2 28 Qxa2 Rxa2 29 Qxa2 Ra8+ 30 Kb2 Ba3+ 31 Ka1\Ka2 33 Bc1# which is quite cool I think.

But can't Kestler survive after Qd5+ Be6 Qd7 Bxb3?

Jul-23-04  Cyphelium: <Papablanca> After 27. Qd5+ Be6 28. Qd2 Bxb3 29. Re1 Bxa2, white doesn't survive.
Nov-27-10  goldenbear: Nobody in the history of chess had Spassky's combinative vision, including Tal.
Jul-04-13  Shams: Friedel - Schill North American Open 2009 reached this position after Black's 13th.

White uncorked 14.Rxd6?? Bxd6 15.Bxf6 Bb4 16.Resigns. Per Schill, a young Nakamura once went down this same road but managed to draw!

Jul-11-16  ToTheDeath: Great finish.
