|2nd Euwe Memorial (1988)|
The second Max Euwe Memorial Tournament was held in Amsterdam, the Netherlands from March 10th to the 17th. It was again organized by the Verenigde Spaarbank and according to the format of the inaugural year. Four of the world's best grandmasters were invited to participate, including (in order of Elo rating): former World Champion and previous year's co-winner Anatoly Karpov (2715), previous year's co-winner Jan Timman (2675), British grandmaster Nigel Short (2630), and Yugoslavian grandmaster Ljubomir Ljubojevic (2610). The rating average of the four participants qualified the event as Category XVII, one of the strongest to be played that year. Short got off to a bad start, losing his second round game to Karpov, but he bounced back by winning three games in a row and securing clear first place against the ex-World Champion.
The 1st Euwe Memorial (1987) and 3rd Euwe Memorial (1989) were the previous and next tournaments in this series.
1 Short ** 0½ ½1 11 4
2 Karpov 1½ ** 0½ ½1 3½
3 Ljubojevic ½0 1½ ** ½1 3½
4 Timman 00 ½0 ½0 ** 1
