Peter Black makes Spassky sweat
Peter Black reports the result of his game against former world chess champion Boris Spassky:
I actually lasted 23 moves before resigning in a lost position. It was fun.
Very creditable. In 1970 - playing on top board in the USSR vs Rest of the World match - Spassky beat the Danish grandmaster Bent Larsen in 17 moves.
