  tamar: Spassky won from both sides of the Albin Counter Gambit at Riga 1959.

One round later, he beat Mikenas in a classic attacking game as White. Spassky vs V Mikenas, 1959

In this game,careless play by Spassky 26...Qxh3 gives Niemala the chance to sacrifice his knight. Niemala sees the idea, but chooses the wrong square.

After 27 Nb6+ cxb6 28 cxb6+ Kb8 29 Qc4 Qc8 30 Qxe4 Qb7 31 Qxb7+ Kxb7 32 Rc7+ it is easy for White.
