Aug-10-07  RookFile: Fischer shows off his all around knowledge of the Sicilian, by transposing Spassky's slow set-up into a dragon defense, and then removing the teeth from white's set-up.

  harrylime: Why not an immediate 18.c4 from Spassky instead of 18.b3 ? Looking to push along with c5 if black plays b5 ...

I like Fischers' 27.. a6 .. kind of highlights Boris' exposed king a little..

Jun-28-16  RookFile: But if you push on by with c5 at some point black drops his knight into c4. I guess the goal of b3 is to rule that out before the complications start.
