The 18th Annual Linares Super Tournament held from February 23rd to March 6th, 2001 was a category XIX event. Six of the world's top players competed in a double round robin format. The participants were (in order of ELO): Garry Kasparov (2849), Peter Leko (2745), Alexei Shirov (2718), Anatoli Karpov (2679), Judit Polgar (2676), and Alexander Grischuk (2663). Despite the absence of Anand and Kramnik from the tournament, no one could dispute Kasparov's absolute domination of the entire field, winning clear first, undefeated, with a three point margin, and the remaining players tied for last.
