Amsterdam VSB 1992
Compiled by suenteus po 147
--*--

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 combined ratings 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 at the final. The final standings and crosstable are as follows:

1 Short 3.5/6 ** 01 1

2 Anand 3.5/6 ** 1

3 Seirawan 2.5/6 10 0 **

4 Timman 2.5/6 0 **
