Chessgames.com Chess Event Description
Corus Group B (2001)

Played in De Moriaan centre, Wijk aan Zee, Netherlands, 16-28 January 2001, with rest days on January 19 and 24. The main attraction was 13-year-old Teimour Radjabov, who had won the First Saturday GM tournament in Budapest, Hungary in December with a full point above the GM norm. The highest rated player (by a very good margin) Mikhail Gurevich won with 8/11, and took home the first prize of 5,000 Dutch guilders (about $2,150, i. e. $3,075 in 2019 value). Radjabov in second place achieved his second GM norm. The 14-year-old Pentala Harikrishna also took his second GM norm, and received 1,000 guilders in prize money besides his 2,000 guilder appearance fee.
