  An Englishman: Good Evening: In the same tournament, Petrosian had played 12...c5 and lost. Here Geller improved with 12...Rb4 harassing the c-pawn, reserving the c-pawn for 17...c7-c6, and waiting until move 31 to put that pawn on c5. Odd that Najdorf wasn't suspicious of Geller's willingness to reenter the same line. Soviet players did have the reputation for working together.
