  Honza Cervenka: Neither the Queen nor the Rook are ideal pieces for a blockade.
Dec-20-15  zydeco: Korchnoi beat up Spassky with this variation (featuring the double fianchetto) during the USSR Championship: [bad chessgames.com link] Taimanov repeats the idea.

Spassky was clearly exhausted at the end of the tournament.

25....Qf6 is hard to understand.

Nov-06-17  edubueno: Mala elección de la apertura.
Nov-06-17  RookFile: Possible was 13...Nxe3 14. Rxe3 Re8 15. Qe2 dxe5. I think the g7 bishop is worth keeping because it controls key dark squares in the black position. White is a little better.
