Linares 1994
Compiled by suenteus po 147
--*--

The 12th Annual Linares Super Tournament held from February 12th to March 14th, 1994 was the first category XVIII event ever held. Fourteen of the world's best players, including both World Champions, competed in a round robin format. The participants were (in order of ELO): Garry Kasparov (2805), Anatoli Karpov (2740), Alexey Shirov (2715), Vishwanathan Anand (2715), Vladimir Kramnik (2710), Vassily Ivanchuk (2710), Gata Kamsky (2695), Boris Gelfand (2685), Evgeny Bareev (2685), Alexander Beliavsky (2650), Veselin Topalov (2640), Judit Polgar (2630), Joel Lautier (2625), and Miguel Illescas-Cordoba (2590). When asked about the strength of the tournament, Kasparov famously stated that the winner could consider himself the world champion of tournament chess. Ironically, it was to be Karpov, his longtime rival who would be the man of destiny, culminating in the greatest single tournament performance of all time! Karpov won the whole ball of wax, undeafeated with an astonishing 11/13!! The final standings and crosstable are as follows:

01 Karpov 11/13 * = = 1 1 1 = = 1 1 1 1 1 1
