* Chess Event Description
Novgorod (1997)

The fourth and final of a series of international tournaments held in Novgorod, Russia was conducted from June 10th to the 23rd, 1997. Six top grandmasters participated in the double round robin event, including the World Champion. The participants were (in order of Elo): Garry Kasparov (2795), Vladimir Kramnik (2740), Veselin Topalov (2725), Boris Gelfand (2700), Nigel Short (2690), and Evgeny Bareev (2665). The ratings of the players made this event the second consecutive one at Novgorod to be rated Category XIX. Kasparov had won back in 1995, and shared first with Ivanchuk in 1994, so it's appropriate that the final edition of "Lord Novgorod the Great", as the tournament was dubbed, would be won by the mighty Gazza. The final standings and crosstable are as follows:

1 Kasparov ** 0 1 1 11 6 2 Kramnik 1 ** 10 1 6 3 Short 0 01 ** 0 01 11 5 4 Bareev 0 1 ** 0 4 =5 Topalov 0 10 1 ** 00 4 =5 Gelfand 00 00 11 ** 4
