6th Euwe Memorial (1992)

The sixth Max Euwe Memorial Chess Tournament was organized by the Verenigde Spaarbank in Amsterdam, the Netherlands from May 14th to the 21st, 1992. Four top grandsmasters were invited to participate in the double round robin event, including (in order of Elo): British grandmaster and previous Euwe Memorial co-winner Nigel Short (2685), Indian grandmaster sensation Vishwanathan Anand (2670), Dutch grandmaster and former Euwe Memorial champion Jan Timman (2620), and US grandmaster Yasser Seirawan (2600). The average of the rating of the players ranked this event as a Category XVI tournament. Because of the many initial draws, chess fans were drawn to incidents of errors in time trouble and Anand getting lost on his way to the playing hall. Eventually, some late wins by Short and Anand secured their tie for first place. The final standings and crosstable are as follows:

1 Short ** 01 1 3 2 Anand ** 1 3 3 Seirawan 10 0 ** 2 4 Timman 0 ** 2

The 5th Euwe Memorial (1991) and 7th Euwe Memorial (1993) were the previous and next tournaments in this series.
