  Honza Cervenka: In very complex and sharp position white collapsed tactically after the 30th move. He could have played 30. Ne4! Rb8 31. Ng5! Rxb6 32. Bd5+ Kf8 33. Ne6+ Ke8 34. Nxg7+ Nxg7 35. f5 Qf6 36. Qc3 Qxc3 37. bxc3 Kf8 38. Bc4 Bxc4 39. Rxb6 Ngxf5 with two Rooks against three minor pieces and extra Pawn, which looks still viable for white. Excellent game by Geller.
