  Honza Cervenka: Quite interesting encounter. In move 20 Karpov sacced an exchange winning a Pawn and weakening another one on the Queenside eliminating thus white's pressure there. Tal later sacced a piece for three Pawns and after short skirmish and trade of Queen the game arrived into ending 2R+4P vs R+B+N+3P in which draw was agreed after a few moves.
