Dec-07-02  ughaibu: This is Botvinnik's only win against Geller in this database. I cant imagine what he was talking about in the interview I mentioned on the Geller thread. It seems to me that Geller never finds a plan, a rather boring one-sided game. Was this really Botvinnik's only win?
Sep-07-10  Xeroxx: I think it was.
