Twelve grandmasters, many of them from the emerging generation of players, participated in the round robin event, including (in order of ELO): Anatoli Karpov (2775), Michael Adams (2685), Alexey Shirov (2685), Boris Gelfand (2665), Judit Polgar (2665), Zoltan Almasi (2655), Peter Svidler (2650), Peter Leko (2630), Joel Lautier (2620), Loek Van Wely (2605), Jeroen Piket (2580), and Emil Sutovsky (2565).
