Kibitzer's Corner
May-07-09  Fanques Fair: The brave young Spassky sacrifices a pawn and gets more than sufficient compensation against the world champion ! It must have been Botvinnik´s idea to offer the draw.
Jan-19-16  ColdSong: I'm afraid Komodo would have queened these two queenside pawns.Fortunately for Spassky,white here was only Botvinnik.
Jan-31-17  ughaibu: It's white's move, so, conventionally, black would've been the one to offer a draw.
May-14-17  edubueno: Muy Buena partida de BS
Aug-11-19  Lander: Spassky juega alegremente deja un peón por actividad.Es difícil mantenerse contra ese estilo de juego.Asumen riesgos pero suelen ganar porque es más fácil atacar que defender.
