  Infohunter: After 35...Kxf7 36.Qg6+ Kf8 37.f6 it's all over. If 35...Kh8 then 36.Rxh7+ Kxh7 37.Qg6+ Kh8 38.Bf6#.

  Honza Cervenka: Spassky went astray after move 25. All four consecutive moves from 26...Qc5+ to 29...Qxa2 were bad and it is hard to say which one of them was the decisive mistake. I doubt that the position would be viable after 29....Qc5 and so my candidate for decisive mistake is 28....Qc4 inviting Rd4 with tempo. But after 28...Qe5 29.g5 hxg5 30.Bxg5 Ne4 31.Nxe4 Qxe4 32.Qxe4 Rxe4 33.Rxe3 Rxe3 34.Bxe3 black would have to defend R+B ending with extra Pawn and at least significant practical winning chances for white.
