Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-09-05  aw1988: Here's a real tactical slugfest.
Sep-01-09  kooley782: Awesome. One of the best Spassky games I've seen so far.
Sep-01-09  AnalyzeThis: Black's bishop on b7 didn't get into this game.
Oct-15-09  kooley782: The way Spassky just took out that bishop on f6, you'd think he was playing "Pach-man!" :)
Oct-15-09  parisattack: Spassky was a true Power Player during his glory years of the late 1960s! Beautiful game.
Oct-16-09  ToTheDeath: Powerhouse chess indeed. The win given by Kasparov after the best defense is quite elegant- 27...Bxe5! 28.Qxf7 Qc3 29. Qf8+ Kh7 30.Rxe5! Qa1+ 31.Kh2 Qxe5+ 32.f4 and with a series of deft maneuvers White then forces the queen trade and marches the passed pawn home. Consult MGP v. 3 for the full details.
Apr-06-15  zydeco: Spassky's real specialty are these slow-motion attacks -- positions where he's strong enough that he can play a move like 25.h4 (making luft) without losing any of his initiative.
Oct-24-16  andrea volponi: 21...f5=
