Been looking at this player's games since posting in another thread earlier on today.

A good fun aggressive style, neat tactical eye, entertaining stuff.

Looks like Geller missed the Queen sac when here:

he played 27.g6 Qxg6!

He fought on trying to mix it but Black was in control and wrapped it with a neat idea.

Here (Black to play)

The Rook is trapped on the 7th with 45...Nc4+ 46.Kc4 Nd7.

White tries to free the Rook with 47.Kd5 with Kd6 ideas but 47...e4 and the pawn deflects the King long enough for the BK to hit the Rook.
