The 50th anniversary of the USSR vs The Rest of the World Match just passed a couple of months ago. I have been playing through some of the games and thought I’d post some here and I go through them.

For those who may not know, this event took place as a 10 board team match with each board playing a four game match.

You can (and should!) read more about the event here.

Here is some raw film footage. No sound, but still pretty cool stuff.

Here is the opening game of board one between world champion Boris Spassky and Bent Larsen.

As I get to some of the more famous games I’ll link to videos analyzing the games, etc.

Til Next Time,

Chris Wainscott
