  Honza Cervenka: 33.Kf3?! and 35.Re4? was a pretty shortcut to an abyss.
Nov-24-14  Sokrates: Excellent play by Keres. In his Predecessor series, Kasparov sets Geller in a brighter light than Keres. Probably influenced by his old teacher Botvinnik, who beat Keres when he was down in the late Stalin period, but only beat Geller once. Here, in this match and many other times, Keres demonstrates that he is at least as good and perhaps better than Geller.
Nov-16-17  Poisonpawns: Well 35.Re4? Is just a one move blunder that costs Geller the game. Keres would then return the favor with a one mover blunder of his own 3 games later.After 35.Bd6 white is worse but far from lost.
