Feb-20-06  Timothy Glenn Forney: 29...♕b2 May have been a little over zealous.Perhaps 32...♖a7 leads to a draw.

  Chessical: Instead of 25...Nxd3, perhaps <25...Qa6> 26.Rec1 Ne6 27.R5c3 Ned4 28.b4 (not 28.Nxd4? exd4 29.Rxc6 Qxc6) 28...axb3 29.Nxb3 Qa7, would have been better?

I believe that Spassky would have still had a significant advantage after <32...Ra7>, e.g. 33.Nc4 Rb1+ 34.Kh2 f6 35.Nh4

Jul-09-06  Timothy Glenn Forney: I have a hard time with material advantages,so the two knights end up being stronger than the Rook in the end, I need to learn more about this type of strategy.
Dec-25-10  Llawdogg: I like the way Spassky took control of the game by trading off the dark squared bishops. Then he was able to put all his heavy pieces on dark squares on the c file. Between around move twenty and move thirty Spassky gradually assumed command and then he went for an endgame that he knew he would win. What mastery!
Dec-25-10  Llawdogg: The last fifteen to twenty moves are like a textbook on endgame technique. Very instructive. Spassky makes it all look so simple, so easy.
Feb-13-13  Snehalshekatkar: From 48th move its extremely instructive combination!
