  Chessical: <Ughaibu> If 30.Rxf2 Rxg3 31.Rxf7 Rxf7+ 32.Ke2 Rg2+ 33.Ke3 Rxb2 with a rook and two pawns for a knight.
Apr-07-04  ughaibu: Thanks. Yes, I'd forgotten the recapture was check.
Nov-03-20  jerseybob: When I see games like this I'm amazed that Geller never won the World title.
Nov-04-20  AlicesKnight: He was Fischer's bogeyman for a while but does not seem to have had that 'extra' that separated the 'great technicians' from the genius. See also Geller vs Karpov, 1976 for another instance of his ability
