Chessgames.com Chess Event Description
Linares (1992)

The 10th Torneo Internacional de Ajedrez "Ciudad de Linares" took place under the direction of Luis Rentero Suarez, with the players Garry Kasparov (Elo #1 in the world), Anatoly Karpov (#2), Vassily Ivanchuk (#3), Nigel Short (#4), Viswanathan Anand (#5), Boris Gelfand (#6), Artur Yusupov (#9), Valery Salov (#10), Evgeny Bareev (#11), Jonathan Speelman (#15), Jan Timman (#19), Alexander Beliavsky (#21), Ljubomir Ljubojevic (#30), and Miguel Illescas (#100). Of the top 10 players in the world, only Alexey Shirov (#7) and Gata Kamsky (#8) were missing. Kasparov, Karpov, Ivanchuk, Anand, Gelfand, Salov and Beliavsky had played in the first Category 18 event Reggio Emilia (1991/92), and Bareev had won at Hastings (1991/92). Salov and Gelfand had shared the win at Hoogovens (1992), and Anand, Karpov, Ivanchuk, Speelman and Ljubojevic had played in the first Melody Amber (1992) rapid tournament in early February.

The world champion Kasparov won with 10/13. Of his last five tournaments, he had won only Tilburg Interpolis (1991). He beat Timman in Round 1 and Karpov (in their 161st game) in Round 2, and was leading all the way. In Round 12, he secured the tournament win by drawing against Salov. According to Leontxo García, Kasparov reacted with fury after the draw, despite winning the first prize of the tournament with one round to go. "Kasparov squandered a point against his compatriot Salov, who managed to draw after six hours, and left the stage with heavy gestures, not allowing anyone to congratulate him ... Timman can tie with the champion but has the unfavorable coefficient ... with his head in his hands, the Azerbaijan born Russian responded at the board with contempt on those who told him that he was guaranteed first place ... While waiting for Salov to analyze the critical position, he shouted: "Draw! Draw! How could I make a draw in this game?""

Kasparov won his last round game (with the black pieces against Ljubojevic) and Timman lost his (with black against Salov), so that Ivanchuk and Timman ended 2nd and 3rd with 8/13. A special prize was awarded to Short vs Timman, 1992 as the most beautiful game.
