1962 Candidates play-off match: Geller-Keres
Compiled by capybara
--*--

This match was played in Moscow in 1962 between Efim Geller and Paul Keres. The match was to determine second place from the Curacao Candidates tournament, which was won by Petrosian. The winner of this match would have second place, and therefore direct entry to the next Candidates tournament, without playing in the Interzonal tournament. It was an eight-game match, with Keres winning by two games to one with five draws.
