--*--

The 19th Annual Linares Super Tournament held from February 23rd to March 10th, 2002 was a category XX event. Six of the world's best players, including the FIDE World Champion, and one Spanish talent, competed in a double round robin format. The participants were (in order of ELO): Garry Kasparov (2838), Viswanathan Anand (2757), Michael Adams (2742), Ruslan Ponomariov (2727), Vassily Ivanchuk (2717), Alexey Shirov (2715), and local Spanish favorite Francisco Vallejo Pons (2629). In what was to be Kasparov's last clear first at Linares, attention was cast on young Ponomariov's debut. The new FIDE KO World Champion won clear second place behind the mighty Gazza. The final standings and crosstable are as follows:

1 Kasparov 8/12 ** 1 1 1 1

2 Ponomariov 6.5/12 0 ** 1 01 1
