Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-10-07  RookFile: Fischer had the chance to play the Gruenfeld here, but passed it up. I suspect that he had worked out the defensive plan used here before the game, and knew it was good enough for a draw.
Jul-13-11  rich187113: whats wrong with 8...e5
Jun-03-12  RookFile: 9. d5 and black's knight isn't as good on e7 as it was on d4 like this game.
Dec-10-14  Zugzwangovich: In his book "No Regrets", Seirawan really lambasts and castigates Spassky for playing 12.Qb3 instead of 12.ab3, with comments like "Huh?", "How could he?" and "The move should get two (in italics) question marks". That may have been unduly harsh; Spassky had played the same move in the same position (minus 8.h4 h5) in Game 7 of his 1968 Candidates Match with Korchnoi and scored a brilliant win. Of that game Cafferty simply noted "ab3 is more common, but White gets queenside pressure in either case".
Dec-29-16  RookFile: Stockfish prefers axb3 but thinks Qxb3 isn't bad either. Spassky may have been trying to play a move that Fischer would have prepared less against.
