|2nd Euwe Memorial (1988)|
The second Max Euwe Memorial Chess Tournament was held in Amsterdam, the Netherlands from March 11th to the 17th. As it was last year, this year's event was organized by the Verenigde Spaarbank (VSB) according to the format of the inaugural year. Four of the world's best grandmasters were invited to participate, including (in order of ELO): former world champion and previous year's Euwe memorial co-winner Anatoli Karpov (2715); previous year's Euwe memorial co-winner Jan Timman (2675); British grandmaster Nigel Short (2630); and Yugoslavian grandmaster Ljubomir Ljubojevic (2610). The combined rating average of the four participants qualified the event as category XVII, one of the strongest to be played that year. Short got off to a bad start losing his second round game to Karpov, but he bounced back by winning three games in a row and securing clear first place against the former world champion. The final standings and crosstable are as follows:
The 1st Euwe Memorial (1987) and 3rd Euwe Memorial (1989) events were the previous and next tournaments in this series.
1 Short 4.0/6 ** 0½ ½1 11
2 Karpov 3.5/6 1½ ** 0½ ½1
3 Ljubojevic 3.5/6 ½0 1½ ** ½1
4 Timman 1.0/6 00 ½0 ½0 **
