    Efim Geller from odessa! The "Giant Killer" of GM chess during cold war era.

    He was the best of the non-world champs and Fischer's nemesis (see Cuaraco, 1962).

    Geller was a legend, a tactician, a novelty generator, and an all-around great who was always a challenge to play when on his A-game.

    How about favourite IM? That'd be interesting

    Plus Nezhmetdinovs Brilliancy awards he won in his lifetime was amazing. In a documentary I watched on Nezhmetdinov, they say he never gained a GM title because he was Muslim. Anyhow I viewed a game between Nezhmetdinov and Tal and even Tal says that he was honoured to have lost to such beautiful play. This game won a brilliancy award. Botvinnik described him as "The Grandmaster of Brilliancy". Give the guy what he deseves! Give him an honorary GM title. I'm sure he earned it faithfully championing for Mother Russia against the world.

    Rashid Nezhmetdinov never gained the GM title, he was "just" an IM. Very exciting attacking style like Tal and Moro so he could be your favourite IM
