Boris Spassky at age 11

Here is a game played by Boris Spassky when he was 11. He learned to play chess when he was 5 while on a train during the evacuation of Leningrad in World War II. He recently suffered a stroke, but appears to be recovering according to latest reports. Hopefully he will spend a bit more time with us mortals before moving on.
