Tilburg Interpolis 1980
Compiled by suenteus po 147
--*--

The 4th Interpolis international chess tournament, held in Tilburg, the Netherlands in 1980 was a category XV event. Twelve grandmasters, including the world champion, competed in the round robin format. The participants were (in order of ELO): Anatoli Karpov (2725), Mikhail Tal (2705), Lajos Portisch (2655), Boris Spassky (2615), Zoltan Ribli (2610), Robert Huebner (2600), Lubomir Kavalek (2600), Jan Timman (2600), Vlastimil Hort (2595), Ulf Andersson (2590), Bent Larsen (2585), and Gennady Sosonko (2545). In a most unfortunate occurrence during this tournament, Ribli had to forfeit his final round game against Sosonko as his father had just died; the forfeited game is not included here. Karpov won his third Tilburg tournament by beating Portisch by half a point. The final standings and crosstable are as follows:

01 Karpov 7.5/11 * 1 1 0 1 1 1

02 Portisch 7/11 * 1 1 1

03 Timman 6.5/11 0 * 1 1 1

04 Sosonko 6/11 * 1

05 Spassky 6/11 0 * 0 1 1 1

06 Tal 5.5/11 0 1 *

07 Hort 5/11 * 0

08 Larsen 5/11 1 0 0 0 1 * 0 1

09 Andersson 4.5/11 0 0 *

10 Ribli 4.5/11 0 0 0 1 *

11 Huebner 4.5/11 0 0 0 * 1

12 Kavalek 4/11 0 0 0 *
