Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-15-03  caga1971: I dont get it...Why the Black played 29..Qb6?
Dec-15-03  jhang: The bad move there was Qb6.I really doubt why a GM commits mistake while infact they knew it already.Maybe he was carried out by pressure............
Dec-16-04  Ernesto7: white is forcing mate by pushing up the queen..notice that the white knigth blocks the white squares surrounding the king..Qb6 stops the check but loses the exchange.
Jan-30-10  Fanques Fair: Spassky was already a killer 17-year old. Good game.
Apr-01-15  A.T PhoneHome: White is forking Black's Rook and Queen, threatening 31.Nxb8, winning the exchange.

Black can't even spite check with Knight or Queen due to White controlling the d-file.
