  Honza Cervenka: What a game! Geller's sac probably was not completely sound but the pressure and complications following after that were too much to handle for poor Tony. 34...Qf6 was a decisive mistake. After 34...Qf4 35.Rxh5+ Kg6 36.Rxe5 Kh6 black is still alive.

  Eyal: And prior to that, 28...Qd6? - allowing exd5, where it isn't good for Black to recapture (29Qxd5 30.Ne4 Qc6 31.c4), followed by Bxf6 and Ne4 - was also a mistake. After 28...Bd7, 28...d4, or even 28...dxe4 29.Nxe4 Bc6/d7, it's doubtful whether White has enough compensation for the sacrificed material.

May-18-18  Granny O Doul: 36. Rxh5+ looks like a nice shot, though ...Kg7 and the game goes on.
