  TheAlchemist: Geller tries his gambit on Smyslov and after some great fireworks, it results in a deserved draw.

  zydeco: Exciting game.

It's odd to see a knight desert a square like d5, but 13...Nc7 protects e6, threatening 14....f5, and gives black ideas of dropping the knight back to e8, protecting g7.

16.Qh4 threatens a cute mate with 17.Bxf7+ Rxf7 18.Qh7+ Kf8 19.Qh8#.
