Nov-16-04  Bluelapis: 47. Rxd5 48. Rd4 Rxd4 49.Kxd4... And White king will chase a-pawn. But all the other pawns will be lost by black king.
Sep-07-13  ColdSong: The "double rook ending squeeze game".
Sep-07-13  parisattack: Geller had a strong record against Stein - especially as White. He seemed to be able to get Stein into rather sterile positions, uncomfortable for Stein's mostly dynamic style of play.
Dec-23-15  jerseybob: <parisattack: Geller seemed to be able to get Stein into rather sterile positions..> To me, this was entirely self-inflicted. Stein was known to be a devotee of the Accelerated Dragon, and this sideline can't have been unknown to him. Geller plays good solid moves, gets the edge and wins.
Dec-23-15  RookFile: I think this is right. In other words, Stein was a player with great imagination, so Geller strove to make the game more technical.
Dec-23-15  jerseybob: <RookFile:> Merry Christmas!
