Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-31-04  maoam: Geller's gambit is probably unsound, but this game illustrates how dangerous it can be; the weakness of Black's kingside dark squares proves fatal if he can't make use of his queenside majority.

Petrosian later refuted 14.Bf3 with Qc8! (see Szabo vs Petrosian, 1955).

  TheFocus: This was the Stockholm Interzonal.
Oct-04-16  dashjon: Petrosian used it himself a number of times. His game vs Smyslov in the 1951 USSR ch. and as late 1958 Petrosian vs Ignatiev Kasparov also used it.
