The 9th Annual Linares Super Tournament held from February 22nd to March 15th, 1991 was a category XVII event. Fourteen of the world's top players, including the World Champion, competed in a round robin format that was the strongest tournament in the world at that time. The participants were (in order of ELO): Garry Kasparov (2800), Anatoli Karpov (2725), Boris Gelfand (2700), Vassily Ivanchuk (2695), Mikhail Gurevich (2650), Jaan Ehlvest (2650), Valery Salov (2645), Alexander Beliavsky (2640), Gata Kamsky (2640), Vishwanathan Anand (2635), Jan Timman (2630), Jonathan Speelman (2610), Artur Yusupov (2605), and Ljubomir Ljubojevic (2595). It was a second phenomenal victory for Ivanchuk who finished clear first with an impressive 9.5/13, even winning his head to head match with second place and world champion, Kasparov.
