Kibitzer's Corner
May-09-05  paladin at large: Complicated middlegame leads to a very interesting finish. Bold play by Spassky with 33. Nb3, but Szabo defends coolly.

What should Spassky have played?

Apr-04-06  Resignation Trap: 33...Nb3? was a combination which didn't work. Spassky could have tried 33...Qb7, with the idea of 34...Nxe2+ 35. Qxe2 Qb2.
Apr-04-06  percyblakeney: 26. ... Bg7 looks very playable for Spassky, white will be in some trouble after 27. Qc2 Nc3.

  Tigranvp: Spassky should've tried 33. ... ab; 34. Nb3 leads to 34. ...Rd1+ settles the matter. 34. Qb3 allows 34. ...Rd2 and an equal position. Further exchanges of major pieces invite a draw. This position was in CL April 06 in Soltis' column starting move 34.
