Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-30-06  Chess Classics: <> Obviously, this game was played when Spassky was still a Russian. Why is he marked as French? All of his great successes came as a Frenchman, after all.


Jan-31-06  szunzein: Nice game. And Chess Classic, you are right, Spassky's greatest successes came as a Frenchman; he never before played the way he does now; his tennis skills are amazing
Jan-31-06  Chess Classics: <szunzein> I meant to say, "Greatest successes came as a Russian" of course.


Feb-01-06  szunzein: I knew, I was joking.
Best wishes
Feb-05-06  Chess Classics: <szunzein> Oops, sorry.

And by the way, a chessical friend of mine says that he once was at a tournement in Europe and he kept hearing these tiny taps of the ball on the court (Bip! Bap!) He pondered to himself that it was either Boris Spassky or a little girl. (Turns out it was Boris Spassky.)


Mar-28-06  szunzein: Thank you for the anecdote,
Best wishes,
Dec-25-06  M.D. Wilson: I love Spassky's "castle-on-the-other-side-of-the-board" games.
