A former world champion, to me, a living chess legend, the last person that played the great Bobby Fischer, Boris Spassky turned 76 today. I wish him a happy birthday and a long life. Here are some of my favorite games from him:
Happy birthday, Boris. I would have loved to attend one of his lectures.
Great thread, thanks! :)
A truly great player and a relatively normal human being for a World Champion! He's always going to be defined by the match with FIscher but his legacy should be more than that. Its a sign of his greatness that he came back to win the ultra tough Soviet championship the year after he lost to Fischer and was a candidate again in 1977 and 1980, not to mention winning a really strong Linares event in 1983. Its not true that the 1972 match destroyed two careers as is often said.
I wish a very happy birthday to one of my favorite chessplayers!
I had the privilege of attending one of Boris Spassky's talks/lectures at Trinity College Dublin.
The man is a great raconteur and a thorough gentleman.
Happy Birthday and good health to you, Boris!
Am I jealous; and what you say is what my friends have told me. And this is a great thread.
Besides which, how many people ever had one of their games featured in a James Bond film?
Yeah, how cool is that?
Great to see Boris attending tournaments!
