Jan-26-14  GREYSTRIPE: Here in this supine-forward, Spassky*& makes clear the Rooks-Holds-Long-Game_Standard. Spassky*& is strong with the Ottomans and Rooks Holds-Gains. The first-ranks made for Rook-Advance-with-Holds-Centers and had no trouble with the opponent making no-squares in their position as it helped Spassky*& to Hold-Centers-Gains. The endurance-factor in a game of chess-of-note~*& makes for a strong mind of chess for chess-play. Rooks-and-Bishops are actually a strength of Spassky*& though many people study his pawns--no harm to anything good.

  zydeco: Elegant positional win by Spassky who had a very good tournament at the 1957 USSR Championship but was of course overshadowed by Tal.

  woldsmandriffield: 32..Rc2 was tempting but wrong. Instead 32..Rxb5 would have dramatically reduced Spassky’s winning chances. 33 Rxb5 (if 33 Bxb5 just 33..Rxa3) 33..Nf6 34 Rb8+ Kh7 35 Bf5+ g6 36 Rb7+ Kh8 and Keres is doing ok.
