  meloncio: This is the first Karpov's game I ever saw in a Spanish magazine. 'The new soviet chess-star suffers a harsh defeat' were the headlines, more or less. And I even didn't know who Karpov (nor Gipslis) was!

I remember that in these times, I tried to play the Pirc in some games, but after a few defeats I turned back to my dear Spanish and Sicilian, and never tried it again.

Jul-13-08  Jim Bartle: Am I mistaken, or Gipslis just push Karpov around the board starting around move 18? Doesn't much look like a typical Karpov game.
Apr-28-15  jerseybob: I'm not sure how well f3 fits in with the Byrne Variation; f4 is the move I've seen most often. If white's going for the slow Saemisch approach with Nh3/f2, Kingside castling is indicated. 11.000 gives black a ready-made target and Gipslis takes full advantage.
