Linares 1983
Compiled by suenteus po 147
--*--

The fourth edition of the international chess tournament held in Linares, Spain (known as 'Torneo Internacional Ciudad de Linares') occurred between February 11th and the 25th in 1983. Eleven grandmasters were invited to participate in the round robin event, including (in order of ELO): Anatoli Karpov (2710), Ulf Andersson (2635), Boris Spassky (2605), Jan Timman (2605), Yasser Seirawan (2600), Vlastimil Hort (2585), Anthony Miles (2585), Efim Geller (2575), Artur Yusupov (2565), Gyula Sax (2560), and Bent Larsen (2555). The average of the combined participants' ELO ranked this as a category XIV event. Ljubomir Ljubojevic had also been invited, but he declined to attend when he learned that Geller had been invited instead of Mikhail Tal. Also of note is that last edition's co-winner, Larry Christiansen, was not invited back. The playing conditions for the tournament were harsh since snowfall had dusted Andalusia before the tournament's start and the Hotel Cervantes where the players were staying had no heat. In addition, Spassky was sick with an end of winter flu which he quickly spread to all the other grandmasters. Despite his illness (or perhaps because of it) the former world champion edged out the then current world champion by half a point for clear first. Spassky's grand prize was $6000 (the total prize purse was $28,000 or 3,640,000 pesetas, not counting appearance fees), which ended up having to offset the loss of his Soviet stipend due to Karpov's displeasure. Spassky would become an official citizen of France the following year after having taken up residence there with his wife five years ago.
