Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-09-08  spasskey69: Very cool how Spassky defends c6 in this game: by placing his three major pieces on the sixth rank!
May-10-15  A.T PhoneHome: The position after 27...Ree6 is cool indeed; funny to see how popular that c6 pawn became!

Too bad the period of fame was cut short.
