Biel 1984

--*--

The 17th annual Biel International Chess Festival was a category X event held in Biel, Switzerland from July 21st to August 3rd, 1984. A combination of twelve grandmasters and international masters were invited to attend the round robin event. The participants were (in order of ELO): Viktor Korchnoi (2635), Robert Huebner (2610), Vlastimil Hort (2605), Lubomir Ftacnik (2595), Eric Lobron (2495), Ian Rogers (2475), Guillermo Garcia Gonzales (2470), Peter Ostermeyer (2470), Jaan Eslon (2445), Pia Cramling (2405), Beat Zueger (2385), and Fernand Gobet (2360). The prize purse for the tournament was 220,000 francs. Korchnoi stumbled in the opening round against WGM/IM Cramling, a loss that would prove costly for the former world #2's standing upon the event's completion. At the finish, Huebner and Hort split first place, each with 8 points out of eleven rounds.

The final standings and crosstable:
