  Honza Cervenka: Another pretty final could be 56.Qd8+ Kg7 (56...Kf5 or 56...Ke6 57.Qd7+ Kf6 58.Qxf7#) 57.Rxf7+ Kxf7 58.Qd7+ Kf6 59,Rb6+ and black must give up both his Queens.

  Tabanus: Perhaps colors are reversed and Geller won this game? Milev is White in both games from Moscow 1956 (if that's one event):

  perfidious: <Tabanus> It may well be that these players met twice; for the Olympiad was held in Moscow that year.

May-09-15  Retireborn: <Tabanus, perfidious> Both games are from the 1956 Moscow olympiad, this one from the A-final, and the short draw from the preliminary group, and Milev is indeed White in both games.

  Tabanus: <perfidious, Retireborn> Thanks.

It seems that the picture I have ( is from the other game?

May-10-15  Retireborn: <Tabanus> Looks like it, yes. You can just glimpse Bronstein and Botvinnik behind Geller, and third board Taimanov is absent, stretching his legs perhaps.

  Tabanus: <Retireborn> I added it to the other game Z Milev vs Geller, 1956. I was not sure at first because both openings have a bishop on g7, but the e5 pawn decides.
