    I admire Spassky's "universal style" and classical sense of style.
    So I took his name and paired it with the year he became world champion.
    He's not my favorite player; that's Petrosian! (Yes, I do have a sense of irony!)
    But at that time, I was playing 1...e5 a lot and Spassky played this as well... He seems a good model for an improving player: focus on tactics, the attack, classical style in that he also played 1...d5 in response to d4.

    I've used this name for a couple decades or so, in lots of different places online. I didn't originate it, but it's unique and sounds cool (at least to me), and I've never found it to be taken by anyone else. Wink

    Originally the name came from a roleplaying game. Someone had given a halfling a really weird name (for a halfling), and a friend of a friend said "What kind of name is that? A halfling should be named something like Bramblyspam".

    So there ya go, I've used the name ever since. And I'm not even short.
