  zydeco: I love this game.

27...g5 weakens the kingside. I think 27...Kg8 is a better defense. White threatens 28.Nxg6 Kxg6 29.Qh5#.

19...f6 and 20...Kf7 looks bizarre, but actually seems like an effective defense.

29...Qxe8 30.gxh5 Kf7 followed by ....e6 looks good enough to draw.

You don't see moves like 33.Kh3 very often, the king rolling itself out of the way so that the queen has room to manoeuvre.

39.Nxf6! is beautiful.

Jan-14-18  saturn2: Suetin says 39 Nxf6 was not correct and could be refuted by 40..Bg7 after which black wins easily. He says further that Spassky made the move intentionaly because he (Suetin) was in time trouble and Spassky speculated Suetin would make a mistake. 40..Bh6 was the mistake.
