  13. Sicilian B53, Best Games
    This interesting and popular opening, even if it favors black in statistics, presents important resources for white and avoids main lines in which black may be better prepared. White gives up his bishop pair for a better attainment of the center and a stronger iniciative

  15. The Application of Chess Theory
    Published by Pergamon Press

    ISBN 0-08-026914-1 (Hardcover)

    ISBN 0-08-029738-2 (Flexicover)

    Efim Geller was one of the World's leading Grandmasters for over three decades. This collection of one hundred of his best games appeared in 1984.

    However, before the games first a few words 'From the Author'.

    "The games in this book were played during the 35 years of my career in big-time chess. Do I number them among my best? In the main, yes, because victory in them brought me that which attracts me more than anything in chess. Defeats are also instructive, of course, but that is a quite different topic... The games are grouped in a rather unusual way - according to opening. This is not by accident. All my life I have been working on the problems of chess theory, and to a certain extent such a grouping enables the book to be regarded as a "report on the work carried out". But the main thing is that, by playing through a whole group of games played, for example, with the Sicilian Defence, I think that simultaneously the reader will be able to master a whole series of stratagems, typical of the given opening. In a separate section are games played by the author against grandmasters with the highest title - that of World Champion. Not every game here is a contender for the epithet of "best", but all, without exception are memorable. But then, there is no way that battles with the chess kings could be otherwise...."
