Moscow Interzonal 1982
Compiled by suenteus po 147
--*--

In September of 1982, the third of three interzonal tournaments was held in the Soviet capital of Moscow to determine the final two qualifiers for the FIDE world championship candidates matches to be held the following year. Fourteen grandmasters had qualified for the interzonal through various zonal tournaments held previously in 1982-1984 world championship cycle. The participants of the Moscow interzonal included (in order of ELO): Garry Kasparov (2675), Alexander Beliavsky (2620), Ulf Andersson (2610), Mikhail Tal (2610), Efim Geller (2565), Gyula Sax (2560), Florin Gheorghiu (2535), Miguel Quinteros (2520), John Van der Wiel (2520), Larry Christiansen (2505), Yacov Murey (2500), Guillermo Garcia Gonzales (2500), Dragoljub Velimirovic (2495), and Ruben Rodriguez (2415). The average of the combined ratings of players qualified the interzonal as a category XII event. Kasparov, who was on fire at this point in his career, finished clear first, undefeated. He blazed a trail across the field, scoring wins against half the participants, and finishing one and half points against second place and fellow candidates qualifier Beliavsky. For this edition of the cycle, third place was kept as a reserve candidate in case one of the top qualifiers dropped out, so Tal and Andersson had to play a match in Malmo the following year to break the tie. That match would end up being tied 3 to 3. Of course now looking back Kasparov's destiny was clear, but at the time it must have been amazing to watch this young man stop the show with each phase of the world championship cycle that he participated in. The final standings and crosstable are as follows:

01 Kasparov * = = = = = 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 = 10/13 02 Beliavsky = * 1 = 1 1 0 0 1 1 0 1 = 1 8.5/13 03 Tal = 0 * = = = 1 = = 1 1 = 1 = 8/13 04 Andersson = = = * 0 = 1 = = = 1 1 = 1 8/13 05 Geller = 0 = 1 * = = 0 1 1 = = 1 = 7.5/13 06 Garcia Gonzales = 0 = = = * 1 1 0 1 1 = 0 1 7.5/13 07 Murey 0 1 0 0 = 0 * 1 = = = = 1 1 6.5/13 08 Sax 0 1 = = 1 0 0 * = = 0 = = 1 6/13 09 Christiansen 0 0 = = 0 1 = = * 0 = = 1 1 6/13 10 Velimirovic 0 0 0 = 0 0 = = 1 * = 1 1 = 5.5/13 11 Van der Wiel 0 1 0 0 = 0 = 1 = = * = 0 = 5/13 12 Gheorghiu 0 0 = 0 = = = = = 0 = * 1 = 5/13 13 Rodriguez 0 = 0 = 0 1 0 = 0 0 1 0 * 1 4.5/13 14 Quinteros = 0 = 0 = 0 0 0 0 = = = 0 * 3/13
