Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-29-09  Alphastar: Very surprising that this game has no comments yet - Spassky uncorks a gem of a queen sacrifice at the end.
Nov-29-09  TheChessGuy: Agreed! In general, Spassky has had a huge influence on my handling of the closed games. Through study of his games with 1.d4, I learned that it is possible to construct a mobile, strong center with interesting attacking chances, playing to the strengths of my own style. Spassky, Mikhail Botvinnik, Viktor Korchnoi, and Garry Kasparov are all great examples of players who can educate people on making queen's pawn openings sharper as White.
