  Honza Cervenka: Less extravagant play by Ujtelky and quite elegant win by Spassky (though a bit cheap due to "cooperative" 39...Kh8?? instead of right 39...Kg8, where the ending with Queens still on the board is far from clear). 38...Qd7 39.Qe5 Qg4 could have held the game without much troubles.

  Benzol: Spassky vs Ujtelky, 1967 would appear to be a duplicate of this game.

  Honza Cervenka: <Benzol: Spassky vs Ujtelky, 1967 would appear to be a duplicate of this game.> 19...Qe7 in that second game makes little sense. 19...Qc7 unpinning the Knight was played.
