Tilburg Interpolis 1989
Compiled by suenteus po 147
--*--

The 13th annual Interpolis international chess tournament was a category XV event held in Tilburg, The Netherlands from September 15th to October 2nd, 1989. Eight grandmasters, including the world champion, were invited to participate in the double round robin event, including (in order of ELO): Garry Kasparov (2775), Vassily Ivanchuk (2660), Viktor Korchnoi (2655), Ljubomir Ljubojevic (2635), Simen Agdestein (2605), Gyula Sax (2580), Johann Hjartarson (2555), and Jeroen Piket (2540). In one of the most impressive tournament performances of all time, Kasparov dominated the field of top grandmasters as if it were an exhibition. He scored 10 wins and 4 draws for a total of 12 points out of 14 possible, finishing 3.5 points over second place Korchnoi and 5 points over shared third! It was a triumph few world champions would ever display while crowned, and it was a feat surpassed only by Anatoli Karpov's amazing victory at Linares five years later. The final standing and crosstable are as follows:

1 Kasparov 12/14 ** 1 1 1 1 11 11 11

2 Korchnoi 8.5/14 0 ** 1 1 1 1

3 Ljubojevic 7/14 0 ** 1 0 01 1

4 Sax 7/14 0 ** 01 1

5 Ivanchuk 6.5/14 0 0 0 10 ** 1 1

6 Agdestein 5.5/14 00 0 1 0 **

7 Hjartarson 5.5/14 00 0 10 ** 10
