The 7th SKA-Mephisto international chess tournament was held in Munich, Germany in May of 1994. Twelve grandmasters competed in the round robin format, including (in order of ELO): Vassily Ivanchuk (2710), Evgeny Bareev (2685), Boris Gelfand (2685), Artur Yusupov (2655), Alexander Beliavsky (2650), Predrag Nikolic (2625), Joel Benjamin (2620), Gerald Hertneck (2615), Robert Huebner (2610), Paul Van der Sterren (2605), Christopher Lutz (2595), and Eric Lobron (2570). The average of the combined participants' ratings qualified the tournament as a category XVI event. Ivanchuk finished undefeated with +4, though Beliavsky and Huebner made it a close race, both nipping at his heels just half a point behind as shared second. The final standings and crosstable are as follows:
