Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-04-05  ThunderStorm: Very good game by Petrosian!
Oct-29-10  Everett: Wow. 26.d7 followed by 27.Qg5 puts black in a fix. Terrible dark-squared weakness for black.
Oct-29-10  goldenbear: Petrosian won more games than anybody in this variation, which is odd considering it involves an immediate pawn sacrifice. I forget what it's called, but I don't think this is a "Geller Gambit" if my memory serves me. I could be wrong.
Oct-29-10  Everett: The position appearing after 5.e4 is none other than the Geller Gambit. look under "legacy."
