What separates Boris Spassky from the other World Champions may surprise you. As GM Dzindzichashvili tells in today's story, Spassky's outgoing personality and "need to be liked" made him one of the most enjoyable chess personalities of all time. His lazy work ethic may not have helped in match play, but his over the board creativity and energy are what made him a legend. Enjoy this exciting win in the King's Gambit!
