It can be hard to know what to make of Boris Spassky's interviews; that is, how seriously they should be taken. In this latest interview, he says that he is writing about his career, a "huge analytical project." If so, great, but Spassky has been saying this for at least 20 years. Cum grano salis.
On another matter, there is his very serious accusation against Iivo Nei. If all he has to go on is the fact that Nei co-authored a book with American GM Robert Byrne on Spassky's 1972 World Championship match with Bobby Fischer, then Spassky's accusation may be slanderous. The evidence of the games doesn't really support Spassky, as he won the theoretical disputes in Fischer's favorite opening lines: the 6.Bc4 Najdorf (game 4, which Spassky should have won) and the Poisoned Pawn Najdorf (at least in game 11). In game 6 Fischer went blindly into a line that Spassky's second Efim Geller had refuted, but Spassky forgot or rejected it at the board and went on to lose a nice game.
Spassky's comments about Korchnoi were also slightly confusing. Their mutual enmity at the time of their 1977 Candidates' match was well-known, but I was under the impression that they had long since buried the hatchet, certainly by 1999 when they played a friendly active match in St. Petersburg. Apparently not.
At any rate, it is an interesting interview.
