Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-07-15  A.T PhoneHome: That's a very interesting ending position!

<30.cxd6+>, after Spassky sacrificed the exchange, has a small tactic to it. If King captures that pawn then Rook on c8 has no defender and it's lost.

Spassky plays beautifully to eventually win c8 Rook and emerge a piece up!

Dec-24-16  A.T PhoneHome: After 22. Rd6 Black can't play 22... Nxd6 due to 23. cxd6, threatening rook and queen, and after queen moves or captures the pawn White will regain the rook and emerge roughly two pawns up.
May-06-20  jerseybob: One of the first Spassky games I ever saw. I was wowed by the tactics..and still am!
