Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-09-07  sanyas: Great game.
Aug-05-12  backrank: After his 23th move, Spassky has his pawns in exactly the formation I used to put them when I played my very first games of chess :-))

Jun-27-20  edubueno: Parece que el error de Klovans fue cxb3; cuando la jugada natural era 14 Axb3
