Chessgames.com Historical Chess Event
Las Palmas (1994)
The Las Palmas Chess Tournament held from May 21st to June 2nd, 1994 was a category XVII event. Ten players, including the reigning FIDE World Champion, competed in a round robin format. The participants were (in order of ELO): Anatoli Karpov (2740), Alexey Shirov (2715), Gata Kamsky (2695), Vladimir Epishin (2675), Michael Adams (2660), Veselin Topalov (2640), Judit Polgar (2630), Joel Lautier (2625), Ivan Morovic-Fernandez (2605), and local Spanish favorite Miguel Illescas-Cordoba (2590). It was to be Kamsky's finest hour at a top tournament, winning clear first with 6.5/9 undefeated, a half point over Karpov. The final standings and crosstable are as follows:

01 Kamsky 6.5/9 * = = 1 = 1 1 = = 1 02 Karpov 6.0/9 = * = 0 1 1 = = 1 1 03 Topalov 5.5/9 = = * = 1 = = 1 = = 04 Lautier 5.5/9 0 1 = * 0 1 1 0 1 1 05 Polgar 4.5/9 = 0 0 1 * 0 0 1 1 1 06 Adams 4.0/9 0 0 = 0 1 * = 1 0 1 07 Morovic-Fernandez 4.0/9 0 = = 0 1 = * = 0 1 08 Illescas-Cordoba 4.0/9 = = = 1 0 0 = * = = 09 Shirov 3.5/9 = 0 0 0 0 1 1 = * = 10 Epishin 1.5/9 0 0 = 0 0 0 0 = = *
