David Bronstein vs Efim Geller
David Bronstein and Efim Geller were two of the best players never to earn the title of World Champion. Both players were very combative and creative players. In this matchup between these two legends, Bronstein comes out on top. He dabbles with an adventurous and somewhat suspicious line of the Nimzo-Indian Defense from the white side. Geller allows white’s center and kingside space to get out of control which brings the game to a screeching halt after Bronstein finds an epic queen sacrifice, one of the most famous moves ever played.
