  offramp: Spassky is brilliant! He has a really avant-garde way of dealing with the Pirc-Ufimstev and it comes off!

  Phony Benoni: Black's pawn structure after his 19th move suffers from a slight lack of cohesion.
Jun-03-09  totololo: Romantic Spassky ! h4/h5 attack is outstanding and the father of the opening changes his plan and .... enter the trap!
Jun-19-09  tommy boy: wow, brilliant
Jan-30-13  Shams: After seven moves Black just has a really bad version of the (already dubious) Beefeater variation. All this can be avoided by the 1.e4 g6 2.d4 Bg7 3.h4 move order (see here: Spassky vs J Gonzalez, 1986)
Feb-07-16  peterh99: Lasker used to recommend always answering g6 with h4 and maybe even answering b6 with a a4 etc.
