Belfort World Cup 1988
Compiled by suenteus po 147
--*--

The second international chess tournament in a series of six organized by the GMA from 1988 to 1989 as a World Cup was held in Belfort, France from June 14th to July 3rd, 1988. Twenty-four of the world's best grandmasters, including the world champion and world vice-champion, were invited to participate in the World Cup, sixteen of them appearing in Belfort's category XV event. The complete list of participants was (in order of ELO): Garry Kasparov (2750), Anatoli Karpov (2715), Jan Timman (2675), Alexander Beliavsky (2645), Nigel Short (2630), Jonathan Speelman (2625), Zoltan Ribli (2620), Artur Yusupov (2620), Ljubomir Ljubojevic (2610), Ulf Andersson (2605), Johann Hjartarson (2595), Robert Huebner (2595), Andrei Sokolov (2595), Jaan Ehlvest (2585), Boris Spassky (2565), and Jesus Nogueiras (2560). Despite placing first at Brussels earlier in the year, and despite winning their head-to-head game here, Karpov could only manage second against Kasparov's impressive victory where he earned wins against half the field for +8(!) at the final. The final standings and crosstable are as follows:

01 Kasparov 11.5/15 * 0 1 = = 1 = 1 = 1 1 1 1 = 1 1

02 Karpov 10.5/15 1 * 1 = = 0 1 = = = = 1 1 1 = 1
