The 17th Annual Linares Super Tournament held from February 28th to March 10th, 2000 was a category XXI event. Six of the world's top players competed in a double round robin format that was heralded as the strongest tournament ever. The participants were (in order of ELO): Garry Kasparov (2851), Vishwanathan Anand (2769), Vladimir Kramnik (2758), Alexei Shirov (2751), Peter Leko (2725), and Alexander Khalifman (2656) who, as the new FIDE champion, was invited as a last minute replacement for Alexander Morozevich. Kramnik and Kasparov tied for first and were declared co-champions, though Kasparov conceded the trophy to his former second. The final standings and crosstable are as follows:

1 Kramnik 6/10 ** 1 1
