The Banja Luka Chess Tournament held in Yugoslavia in 1979 was a category IX event. Sixteen grandmasters competed in a round robin format, including (in order of ELO): Tigran Petrosian (2610), Ulf Andersson (2560), Jan Smejkal (2550), Walter Shawn Browne (2540), Andras Adorjan (2525), Bojan Kurajica (2515), Slavoljub Marjanovic (2505), Roman Hernandez (2500), Milorad Knezevic (2500), Enver Bukic (2495), Aleksandar Matanovic (2495), Milan Vukic (2485), Drazen Marovic (2470), Milenko Sibarevic (2355), and two unrated chess talents: Garry Kasparov and Guillermo Garcia Gonzales. 16 year old Garry Kasparov went undefeated to make this his first all-GM tournament victory with a final score of 11.5/15, a full two points over second place.
