The 8th Annual Linares Super Tournament held from February 18th to March 3rd, 1990 was a category XVI event. Twelve of the world's top players, including the World Champion, competed in a round robin format. The participants were (in order of ELO): Garry Kasparov (2800), Vassily Ivanchuk (2665), Valery Salov (2645), Alexander Beliavsky (2640), Nigel Short (2635), Ljubomir Ljubojevic (2625), Boris Gelfand (2615), Artur Yusupov (2615), Boris Gulko (2610), Lajos Portisch (2605), Boris Spassky (2560), and local, Spanish favorite Miguel Illescas-Cordoba (2530).
