Jul-13-08  M.D. Wilson: Fantastic game which clearly displays the styles of both players: Geller's tactical vision and endgame mastery (for which he is not popularly regarded); and Gligoric's depth and vigorous play.

Apr-27-19  cunctatorg: It's hard for me to believe that this masterpiece has been played OTB ... which is the case of course!! However the most fascinating part is after move 40 and the analysis of both camps made a real display of its power, that's my guess! Analysis for more that ten-fifteen moves? Yes, by all means!!
