Oct-13-05  waddayaplay: Does anyone know if white actually resigned here or if the game is truncated?
Dec-04-05  CaptainEvans: According to a booking I have on the k.i.d., Holm did resign at this point as 11.f3 was such a disasterous move.

  Jonathan Sarfati: No, White resigned here, remembering what had happened two rounds earlier: J Adamski vs Geller, 1968

  wordfunph: <Jonathan Sarfati> right.

as Geller related from his book The Application of Chess Theory..

<This occurred in the 9th round of the Olympiad Final, and in the 11th round we played the Danish team. My opponent Holm made his first 11 moves confidently enough, but sank into thought over his 12th move, then evidently remembered something, shook his head and...stopped the clocks. The point was that the position on the board was the one from the Adamski-Geller game!>

Jul-22-12  erimiro1: Yes, a vicious trap that makes black position much better, but still there's a game to play. I'm not sure that Adamski played the best move after the shock.
