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

Five years after the strong international chess tournament held in Niksic, Montenegro in what was then known as Yugoslavia in 1978, another international event was organized by the city that was even stronger than the first. Fifteen of the world's best grandmasters attended the round robin tournament held in August of 1983. The participants were (in order of ELO): Garry Kasparov (2690), Ljubomir Ljubojevic (2645), Ulf Andersson (2640), Mikhail Tal (2620), Yasser Seirawan (2605), Boris Spassky (2605), Jan Timman (2605), Lajos Portisch (2600), Anthony Miles (2585), Tigran Petrosian (2580), Gyula Sax (2570), Bent Larsen (2565), Predrag Nikolic (2540), Bozidar Ivanovic (2515), and Svetozar Gligoric (2505). The combined ratings of the players qualified the tournament as a category XIV event. Kasparov, who was on a winning streak following his shared first at the USSR Championship in 1981 and first at the Moscow Interzonal in 1982, had defeated Alexander Beliavsky in the candidates quarter-final match in April of '83. He was the only candidate to participate in the event, and the momentum from his tournament and WC cycle victories propelled him to one of his best ever tournament performances here. He finished the tournament with an astounding 11 points out of 14 games, with former world champion candidate Larsen trailing him as clear second by two whole points. Kasparov would finish the year by defeating Viktor Korchnoi in the candidate semi-finals and go on to challenge the world champion Anatoli Karpov in 1984.
