Feb-11-11  Caissanist: Efim Geller's son was named Alexander/Aleksandr (not the same Alexander Geller who has a few games in this database).

  wordfunph: Jacov Geller finally a GM, grats!

Aug-11-13  Abdel Irada: <Ilgiz Tashkhodzhaev: Uri Geller>

Why does this remind me of when I was nine years old, and when my little sister asked me how to spell our grandfather's name (Harold in full), I told her, "H-A-I-R-Y"?

If you'd pulled <sitzkrieg>'s leg any harder, it would still be here.

  offramp: The mother of Efim Geller.
Aug-01-14  Ke2: The transgendered cousin of Uri Geller.
Aug-01-14  Ke2: Good pun potential with his first name.
