|Apr-05-04|| ||ughaibu: Chessgames.com: Again according to Chessbase this is the correct score and Leonid Stein vs Geller, 1966 is incorrect. |
|Apr-17-06|| ||notyetagm: Damn, this is the worst beating I have ever seen Stein get.|
|Apr-17-06|| ||AlexandraThess: This game is analysed in details in the Geller's monography "The Old Indian defence" Moscow 1980. Geller knows the ideas of this opening as no one else!However i don't like players with so aggresive style.I prefer Petrosian and Botvinnik.|
|Apr-17-06|| ||Eric Schiller: The monograph you refer to is "The King's Indian Defense". In Russian, they use the word "oldindian" for the King's Indian and "newindian" for the Queen's Indian. But the translation of the title should be the accepted name of the opening. Geller wrote extensively on both.|
|Apr-19-06|| ||AlexandraThess: <Eric Schiller> Thanks for correcting my mistake. I am studying russian at the moment and that's why I have translated literally the title of the book.|
|Mar-06-09|| ||dwavechess: 18/23 concur with Rybka 3 at 3 min. per move quad for Geller|
|May-08-13|| ||Jonathan Sarfati: Compare Spassky vs Fischer, 1992|
|Aug-07-13|| ||rgrinberg: I guess Stein resigned to 24. Bg3 Nf6 and 24. Rg1 Nxh2+.|
|Oct-23-13|| ||FSR: <rgrinberg> After 24.Rg1 Rxh7! (even better accurate than your 24...Nxh2+, leaving Black a piece up) Black wins the bishop on h2, leaving him ahead two pieces.|
|Oct-30-14|| ||tranquilsimplicity: An incredibly illustrative game. Stein attempts to deviate from established paths with 5.Bg5, upon which Geller harasses the Bishop with ..h6 as expected, and then strikes with ..c5 in attempt to establish Stein's intentions and stake a claim at the all-important centre!|
Stein closes the centre with 6.d5 perhaps with ideas of initiating a Kingside attack; Geller is having none of that! Geller's idea has matured; ..Qa5! follows in order to put pressure on the e4 pawn, Stein defends with Bd3. Geller counters with ..g5 insisting on grabbing the e4 pawn. And with 9.Bg3, ..Nxe4 and Geller forces all of Stein's remaining moves!!
