Chessgames.com Chess Event Description
Horgen (1995)
The third and final installment of the PCA "Super Classic" chess tournament series was played in Horgen, Switzerland from October 21 to November 2, 1995. The "Credit Suisse Masters", as it was called, was a round robin, Category XVII tournament organized directly after the PCA World Championship. Garry Kasparov had defeated Viswanathan Anand, then joined ten other top rated grandmasters for the final event in the year's series. The complete list of participants included (in order of Elo): Kasparov (2795), Vassily Ivanchuk (2740), Vladimir Kramnik (2730), Artur Yusupov (2680), Nigel Short (2645), Rafael Vaganian (2645), Viktor Korchnoi (2635), Joel Lautier (2635), Jaan Ehlvest (2630), Boris Gulko (2620) and Jan Timman (2590). Nine of the original top ten PCA rated grandmasters who started the series finished it. Anand dropped out of Novgorod and was replaced by Veselin Topalov. Here, Topalov was replaced by Lautier. Korchnoi was added to the competition as a local grandmaster to represent Switzerland. In the surprise of the year, world champion Kasparov finished with an even score, having dropped one game, to tournament co-winner Ivanchuk, as he and Kramnik finished with 7/10, capitalizing on the speculation that both players were strong enough to soon become world champions themselves. Although Kramnik would eventually succeed in this respect, the title continued to elude Ivanchuk. The final standings and crosstable follow:

Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-14-14  Maatalkko: I believe this was the worst individual tournament performance of Kasparov's entire career.

It really puts into perspective how dominant he was, that his worst tournament in 28 years of professional chess would be an unremarkable performance for any other player of his generation.

  perfidious: <Maatalkko: (This result) really puts into perspective how dominant (Kasparov) was, that his worst tournament in 28 years of professional chess would be an unremarkable performance for any other player of his generation.>

So it does.

Feb-29-16  Howard: To be fair, this event took place shortly after his match with Anand, so he was probably still worn out.

In fact, eight of his games (out of ten) went less than 40 moves.
