Chessgames.com Chess Event Description
Linares (1999)
The 16th annual Linares Super Tournament held in Linares, Spain from February 20th to March 10th, 1999 was a Category XX event. Eight of the world's best players, including the world champion, participated in the double round robin. They were (in order of Elo): Garry Kasparov (2812), Vishwanathan Anand (2781), Vladimir Kramnik (2751), Michael Adams (2716), Vassily Ivanchuk (2714), Peter Svidler (2713), Veselin Topalov (2700), and Peter Leko (2694). Kasparov, already a long time champion at Linares, dominated with a stellar 10.5/14 at the end, garnering wins against everyone except young Leko and future challenger to the crown Kramnik. The final standings and crosstable are as follows:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 1 Kasparov ** == =1 == 11 1= =1 11 10.5 2 Kramnik == ** == == == == =1 1= 8.0 3 Anand =0 == ** == == =1 1= =1 8.0 4 Leko == == == ** 1= == 0= 0= 6.5 5 Ivanchuk 00 == == 0= ** =1 1= 0= 6.0 6 Topalov 0= == =0 == =0 ** =1 == 6.0 7 Svidler =0 =0 0= 1= 0= =0 ** =1 5.5 8 Adams 00 0= =0 1= 1= == =0 ** 5.5

Apr-08-13  positionalgenius: Incredible tournament from Kasparov. One of his finest achievements.
Apr-08-13  suenteus po 147: It's also worth noting that five of Kasparov's seven wins were with black. All of which were Sicilian defenses. There were ten black wins in the tournament, and Kasparov by himself matched all the remaining black wins combined.
