Geller vs Gavrikov, 1985

Dreev's improvement 18. Qd4 is nowadays not considered satisfactory.

As a matter of fact it is Victor Gavrikov that shows that in this game with his defence.

It is likely that 23.h4 leads to a draw for white even with exchange down.

Dreev choice to continue with 23. Bd2?! leads to worse position.

It also seems that

26. ...Ra8! [instead of Gavrikov's 26. ... Na3?!)
27. Nxb5 Bxb5
28. Rxb5 Rxa2
29. h4 Ne3

was decisive due to weak back rank of white.

The rest of the game is pretty much worthless as both players are playing very imprecise missing numerous chances.
