Knowing the intense inter-

master Isaac Kashdan.
The fifth game of the world
chess championship in Iceland
was marked by as grevious an
error by Boris Spassky as the
ones that Bobby Fisher com-
mitted in their first encounter.
Spasky had evidently com-
pletely overlooked Fishers reply
when he made his 27th move..
His choice of the square B2 for
the queen was to protect his
rooks pawn for the second time.
Fischer's BxP, based on a keen
tactical point, forced an imme-
diat einroad. If Spassky had
captured the bishop, Fisher
would have followed with QxP.
He would then threaten mate
on the move in two ways, and
there would be no adequate de-
Failure to take theabishop
would also be of no avail to
Spassky. He would have to move
his queen. Fischer would ex-
change bishops, and again QxP
would follow. Spassky recog-
nized his helplessness by re-
signing at once.
Both players followed the
pattern of their first game un-
til Spassky's sixth move. Fisher
then varied. Instead of playing
for a balanced pawn formation,
and a series of exchanges, as in
the first game, Fisher took a
course that seemed inferior.
He exchanged his bishop for
a knight and allow Spassky a
more advanced pawn center.
On the other hand, Spassky's
queen-side pawns wewre sepa-
rated and proved weak.
Spassky's 11th move was pro-
bably an inferior advance,
which caused problems later. It
left his king's pawn backwards,
in a manner similar to the sit-
uation in the third game.
Spassky could not coordinate
.his pieces and his two bishops
wewre ineffective, blocked by
pawns on both sides. After the
rooks wewre exchanged, Fischer
had better prospects.
