One of the best games of Chess played

This is one of the better games Spassky ever played; Not that I’m really a worthy judge, but hey Bobby Fischer said it too. Nicely done chessbase player on the site with a good analysis and some interesting facts about the game. I particularly liked this bit: “Another strong player – nearly of GM strength, and part of the Soviet contingent – is supposedly have reported to his bosses that Spassky had just blundered a piece and now was lost. (I heard this story from an expatriated Russianwho was present at this match – at a World Open one year.)” Anyway, even if you haven’t played for a while, you’ll appreciate what a great game this was.
