Nov-29-05  vampiero: the continuation of course being an inevitable mate with 44. b4+ Ka4 45. Bb3+ Kb5 46. Rc5#
Jan-17-09  great uncle bulgaria: also ....
44 Bxa6 Rb7 45 Rc5 Rb5 46 RxR#

Jan-17-09  xrt999: If 41.Rxg2?? picking up the free bishop, then black replies with the devastating 41...Kb3! and black is threatening mate with 42...Kh1 AND has a passed f pawn, and white's whole game falls apart.

But, of course, this is Geller. He plays the quiet 41.Kb2 and the game is over.

  Peligroso Patzer: At move 32, Geller overlooked the immediately decisive 32. Rxd7+, both over-the-board and in his notes in "The Application of Chess Theory". After 32. Rxd7+ Kxd7, 33. Nb5+ would be .

Geller does comment in his notes that one move later, the capture on d7 would have been a terrible blunder (due to White's back-rank weakness: 33. Rgxd7?? Rxd7 34. Rxd7 Rh1+ ).

Dec-07-11  Whitehat1963: Geller offers more poison than Snow White's evil queen!
