* Chess Event Description
7th Euwe Memorial (1993)

The seventh Max Euwe Memorial Chess Tournament was organized by the Verenigde Spaarbank (VSB) in Amsterdam, the Netherlands from May 6th to the 13th, 1993. Lies Muller acted as director and Geurt Gijssen served as arbiter. Four of the world's best grandmasters were invited to participate in the double round robin event, including (in order of Elo): Indian grandmaster and previous year's Memorial co-winner Vishwanathan Anand (2710), Russian grandmaster Vladimir Kramnik (2685), British grandmaster and previous year's co-winner Nigel Short (2655), and Dutch grandmaster Jeroen Piket (2590). The average of the combined ratings of the players ranked this event as Category XVII. The event was quite exciting as the lead switched hands a couple of times over the ensuing rounds. Short and Kramnik swapped points, with Kramnik confessing afterwards he was stupid to resign to Short in the fourth round. Anand gained two points off Piket, but then fell to Short in the final round. Three of the four participants shared first place, each with 3.5/6. The final standings and crosstable are as follows:

=1 Short ** 01 ½1 ½½ 3½ =1 Kramnik 10 ** ½½ ½1 3½ =1 Anand ½0 ½½ ** 11 3½ 4 Piket ½½ ½0 00 ** 1½

The 6th Euwe Memorial (1992) and 8th Euwe Memorial (1994) were the previous and next in the series.
