Moscow 1992
Compiled by suenteus po 147
--*--

The Russian capital city of Moscow was host to another Alekhine Memorial in November of 1992. This edition of the international chess tournament was a category XVIII event. Eight of the world's best grandmasters participated in the round robin event, including (in order of ELO): Anatoli Karpov (2715), Alexey Shirov (2710), Vishwanathan Anand (2690), Boris Gelfand (2685), Jan Timman (2665), Gata Kamsky (2655), Valery Salov (2655), and Artur Yusupov (2640). The tournament was a jewel of fighting display, with half the overall games being decisive and many of the draws were hard fought. Though former world champion and world number two Karpov was in attendance, it was the newer generation who dominated this event, with Gelfand and Anand sharing first place just ahead of young Kamsky in clear third. The final standings and crosstable are as follows:

1 Gelfand 4.5/7 * 1 = = 1 1 0 =

2 Anand 4.5/7 0 * 1 = = 1 = 1

3 Kamsky 4/7 = 0 * 1 = 0 1 1

4 Yusupov 3.5/7 = = 0 * = = 1 =

5 Salov 3.5/7 0 = = = * = = 1

6 Karpov 3.5/7 0 0 1 = = * = 1

7 Shirov 3/7 1 = 0 0 = = * =
