Chessgames.com Chess Event Description
Linares (1997)

The 14th Annual Linares Super Tournament held in 1997 was a Category XVIII event. Twelve of the world's top players, including the World Champion, competed in a round robin format. The participants were (in order of Elo): Garry Kasparov (2795), Vishwanathan Anand (2765), Vladimir Kramnik (2740), Vassily Ivanchuk (2740), Veselin Topalov (2725), Boris Gelfand (2700), Alexei Shirov (2690), Michael Adams (2665), Predrag Nikolic (2655), Alexey Dreev (2650), Judit Polgar (2645), and Jeroen Piket (2640). Kasparov dominated in his usual manner, this time scoring wins against 2nd through 6th place. The final standings and crosstable are as follows:

  offramp: There are some pictures from various Linareseses at chessbase, http://en.chessbase.com/post/linare... It is interesting to see the orientation of different players' knights. Most seem to face forward. Some both face left, oddly.

My knights both look towards the king.

LOL at the photos of a long-haired Kramnik!!!!
