Rotterdam World Cup 1989
Compiled by suenteus po 147
--*--

The fifth international chess tournament in a series of six organized by the GMA from 1988 to 1989 as a World Cup was held in Rotterdam, The Netherlands from June 3rd to the 24th, 1989. Twenty-four of the world's best grandmasters, including the world champion and world vice-champion, were invited to participate in the World Cup, seventeen of them appearing in Rotterdam's category XV event along with one national grandmaster to represent The Netherlands as host. The complete list of participants was (in order of ELO): Anatoli Karpov (2750), Nigel Short (2650), Valery Salov (2630), John Nunn (2620), Johann Hjartarson (2615), Lajos Portisch (2610), Gyula Sax (2610), Yasser Seirawan (2610), Jan Timman (2610), Artur Yusupov (2610), Andrei Sokolov (2605), Jaan Ehlvest (2600), Robert Huebner (2600), Rafael Vaganian (2600), Ljubomir Ljubojevic (2580), Boris Spassky (2580), Jesus Nogueiras (2575), and John Van der Wiel (2560). Spassky dropped out of the tournament before the draw, while Huebner withdrew during the tournament, after his first round draw to Nogueiras. His game and standing were subsequently expunged. The event was a triumph for the Dutch grandmasters, as Jan Timman overcame Karpov by a full point to take first place at the final, despite losing in their head-to-head game. John Van der Wiel, who had joined to represent The Netherlands, also finished way ahead of his rated seeding, finishing tied for fifth place just behind the leaders. The final standings and crosstable are as follows:
