Apr-05-04  ughaibu: Chessgames.com: Again according to Chessbase this is the correct score and Leonid Stein vs Geller, 1966 is incorrect.

  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.

  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.

Aug-07-13  rgrinberg: I guess Stein resigned to 24. Bg3 Nf6 and 24. Rg1 Nxh2+.

  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.
