SimonWebbsTiger: Apparantly not, <Llawdogg>, even though this is game 44 in "Taimanov's Selected Games" (Everyman 1995).
Taimanov's comment after 16...Rac8 is instructive:
"The critical point of the game. Several positional factors make White's position very attractive - he has a spatial advantage, strong influence in the centre, two active bishops, and harmoniously placed pieces.
But there is also a significant defect - the vulnerable pawn at c4. In such situations there are usually two alternatives - either consolidate the position by giving up certain trumps (e.g. by 17. Bxf6 gxf6 18. Rc1), or else try to accentuate the dynamic pluses and launch a counterattack. The choice is a matter of taste. I preferred the sharper alternative."
Taimanov suggested the prophylactic 17...h6 as an improvement.
Geller went on to tie for first in the 22nd USSR Chp. with Smyslov and won the Chp. after defeating Smyslov 4-3 in the play-off. (Source: "The Soviet School of Chess" by Kotov and Yudovich, Dover 1961.)
