  1. 1997 - Groningen Candidates Tournament
    including FIDE's minimatch

    1.Anand's Performance in Classical (Groningen): 2824 -- 71,4% [+6 -0 =8] vs. 2665 opposition
    -- All Results: 67% [+8 -0 =15]

    Anand's Performance in Classical (+FIDE match): 2794 -- 65% [+8 -2 =10] vs. 2686 opposition
    -- All Results: 60% [+10 -4 =17]

    2. Adams [2750 perf.in Classical: +4 -1 =9] all:60%[18/30]

    3. Short [2793 perf.: +6 -2 =2] all:64%[13,5/24]

    4. Gelfand [2626 perf.: +0 -1 =7] all:58%[10.5/18]

    5. Dreev [2734 perf.: +2 -0 =6] all:63%[7.5/12]

    6. Van Wely [2709 perf.: +2 -0 =6] all:57%[8/14]

    7. Shirov [2704 perf.: +2 -1 =5] all:60%[6/10]

    8. Krasenkow [2638 perf.: +3 -2 =5] all:57%[8.5/15]

    The matches, consisting of 2 (4 in round 7, and 6 in the championship) games, were played at the rate of 1 game per day, with time limits of 40/100, 20/50, and all remaining moves in 10 minutes. 30 seconds were added to the clock after each move, commencing from the first move. No adjournments!

    Should the match be tied, on the following day, a second match would be played, all game in 25 minutes for each player, with 10 seconds added to the clock after every move. Should this second match be tied, in rounds 2 - 7, another match would be played, all game in 15 minutes for each player, again with 10 seconds added to the clock after every move.

    If the score were still tied after the 2d match of round 1, or the 3rd match of rounds 2-7, then sudden death games, 4 minutes for White, 5 minutes for Black, 10 seconds added to the clock after each move, were played. In case, of a draw, another game would be played. Should the arbiter feel that too much time was being taken, he (or she...) could require one sudden death game, 6 minutes for white, 5 for black, no added time. In event of a draw, black advances to the next round.

    326 games, 1997-1998

  2. 1999 - FIDE World Championship KO Tournament
    The FIDE World Chess Championship 1999 was held in Las Vegas, United States, between 31 July and 28 August 1999.

    A change from the 1998 championship was that incumbent champion (Anatoly Karpov) had no special privileges, other than that he (like a number of leading players) was seeded into the second round. In protest at this, Karpov refused to play. Kasparov and Anand also refused to play, as they were negotiating a rematch, and also harbored criticisms of the format.

    Time limits: two games (four in the semifinals, six in the final) with 40 moves in 100 minutes, followed by 20 moves in 50 minutes, followed by all moves in 10 minutes. In addition there was a time increment of 30 seconds per move added to the players time (from move 1).

    Rapid-play tie-break games The first series of two games played at 25 minutes per player + 10 seconds time increment. If required a second series of two games played at 15 minutes per player + 10 seconds time increment. If the match was still tied a series of sudden death games were played. The first player to win went through. White started with 4 minutes and Black five minutes + 10 seconds time increment. If the match carried on too long in this mode (to be decided by the arbiter) then a single decisive game was to be played. White received 6 minutes and black 5 minutes (no increment, black goes through in the event of a draw).

    Trivia: 8 players were qualified to the WCC by taking part in an Internet competition run by FIDE: Olivier Touzane (FRA), Gaetan Sarthou (FRA), Nikolai Vlassov (RUS), Nuzgar Zeliakov (RUS), Igor Nataf (FRA), Sergey Shipov (RUS), Dorian Rogozenko (ROM) and Peter Heine Nielsen (DEN).

    Touzane (ranked last of the 128 contestants) took first blood against Anand in Round 1 -- but the former champion was able to recover. Even more shocking was Karpov's elimination in that round by the unknown Zhang Pengxiang (2487 rating, seed #113)
