Linares 1993
Compiled by suenteus po 147
--*--

The 11th Annual Linares Super Tournament held from February 22nd to March 15th, 1993 was a category XVIII event. Fourteen of the world's top players, including the World Champion, competed in a round robin format that became known as the strongest tournament in the world. The participants were (in order of ELO): Garry Kasparov (2805), Anatoli Karpov (2725), Vishwanathan Anand (2710), Vassily Ivanchuk (2710), Boris Gelfand (2690), Vladimir Kramnik (2685), Evgeny Bareev (2670), Alexey Shirov (2670), Valery Salov (2660), Gata Kamsky (2655), Artur Yusupov (2645), Jan Timman (2635), Alexander Beliavsky (2610), and Ljubomir Ljubojevic (2605). Despite Short's absence (he claimed he would take no part in the 'Russian Championship') the field assembled was considered the strongest ever for an international tournament. Not surprisingly Kasparov and Karpov raced neck and neck towards the end, with Kasparov defeating Karpov in their game and eventually winning the tournament undefeated. The final standings and crosstable are as follows:

01 Kasparov 10/13 * 1 1 = = = = = 1 1 = 1 1 1

02 Karpov 8.5/13 0 * = = = 1 = 1 = 1 1 0 1 1
