Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-06-05  Eopithecus: In Geller's book The Application of Chess Theory on page 17 after Black's 12th move he gives these notes. "Heading for c5, not fearing the loss of the b pawn: 13. axb5 axb5 14. Rxa8 Qxa8 15. Qxb5 Bxe4! 16. Qxd7 Bh4+". However after just 17. g3 Bxf3 18. 0-0 I don't see an attack, but only a spite check by the queen, and Black is down almost a full piece. Am I missing something?

Jun-25-11  SimonWebbsTiger: the variation given by Geller is all the more curious considering 15...Nc5 looks sound and extremely strong
