Jun-29-09  ToTheDeath: <24...Nxd4?> is too speculative. 24...Bb6 is fine. Spassky has little trouble consolidating his piece advantage and then finishes with great savoir-faire. 39...Kh8 40.Rh7+ Kxh7 41.Rf7+ Kh8 42.N5g6 mate.

What do you foresee after 24...Bb6 25. Bxf5? On cursory inspection Black's position doesn't look fine to me.

Jun-30-09  ToTheDeath: <beatgiant>: Rybka gives 24...Bb6 25.Bxf5 Qe7 26. Rd1 a5 27.bxa5 Rxa5 followed by ...Qa7 . Black's attack is faster than White's.
