--*--

The 16th annual Linares Super Tournament held in Linares, Spain from February 20th to March 10th, 1999 was a category XX event. Eight of the world's best players, including the world champion, participated in the double round robin. They were (in order of ELO): Garry Kasparov (2812), Vishwanathan Anand (2781), Vladimir Kramnik (2751), Michael Adams (2716), Vassily Ivanchuk (2714), Peter Svidler (2713), Veselin Topalov (2700), and Peter Leko (2694). Kasparov, already a long time champion at Linares, dominated with a stellar 10.5/14 at the end, garnering wins against everyone except young Leko and future challenger to the crown Kramnik. The final standings and crosstable are as follows:

1 Kasparov 10.5/14 ** == =1 == 11 1= =1 11

2 Kramnik 8/14 == ** == == == == =1 1=
