This is an amazing game where Geller beats the World Champion Karpov in his only defeat at the 1976 USSR Championship.

I think it´s a game where the French defence doesn´t work due to the great game that Geller made.

Enjoy it, as i did :

    To avoid losing the game, black has to play Re2. After that move, white rook gives a 2 pawn advantage for white at the endgame, no ?

    <Peterh> : a normal human CAN  play this, and even harder, this is nothing ! , the evidence : people who solve chess puzzle in sundays in chessgames !

    Geller makes Karpov to seem like an amature!The check with the rook and the queen sacrifice are amazing.Reminds me a bit of Tal..
