Chessgames.com Historical Chess Event
1st Euwe Memorial (1987)
The first Max Euwe Memorial Chess Tournament was organized by the Verenigde Spaarbank in Amsterdam, the Netherlands from May 7th to the 14th, 1987. The format for the tournament followed that of the Euwe Jubilee played in Amsterdam a decade earlier, where four of the world top grandmasters were invited to play a double round robin, with rest days coming after the third and fifth rounds. Adjourned games were completed on rest days. The playing hall for the memorial was Singel 548, which was the main building of the bank. The participants of the inaugural event were (in order of ELO):

former world champion Anatoly Karpov (2710);
Swiss grandmaster Viktor Korchnoi (2625);
Dutch grandmaster Jan Timman (2590); and
Dutch grandmaster John Van der Wiel (2590).

The average of the combined ratings of the players ranked this event as a category XVI tournament. Just as he had a decade earlier in the Euwe Jubilee, Karpov dominated easily, though this time he was joined by undeniable Dutch talent Timman at the final. The final standings and crosstable are as follows:

1 Karpov 4.0/6 ** 1 1 2 Timman 4.0/6 ** 11 3 Korchnoi 2.5/6 0 ** 4 Van der Wiel 1.5/6 0 00 **

The 2nd Euwe Memorial (1988) was the next tournament in this series.
