In Iceland, 50 years ago today, a dramatic win for Boris Spassky, his first against Bobby Fischer since games 1 and 2.  Fischer did not defend well and Spassky trapped Fischer’s queen and handed him his only defeat ever as Black in the Poisoned Pawn Sicilian.  But Fischer’s lead at this point seems unassailable.
