Reggio Emilia 1990/91 II
Compiled by suenteus po 147
--*--

Following the conclusion of the world championship at the end of 1990, fourteen of the top sixteen players in the world were invited to compete at the new year's international tournament in Reggio Emilia, Italy. The prestigious A event was divided into two sections: the first called the "top 16" event, and the second called the "top 15" event. The participants of the second, "top 15" event included (in order of ELO): Alexander Beliavsky (2640), Vladimir Epishin (2620), Oleg Romanishin (2610), Ljubomir Ljubojevic (2590), Lajos Portisch (2590), Rafael Vaganian (2585), and Boris Gulko (2575). The average of the combined ratings of the players qualified the tournament as a category XV event. The final of the double round robin saw the ever unpredictable Ljubojevic emerge clear first, having dropped only one game against top seed Beliavsky. Vaganian trailed Ljubojevic by only half a point, having gone undefeated. The final standings and crosstable are as follows:

1 Ljubojevic 7/14 ** 1 0 1 1

2 Vaganian 6.5/14 ** 1

3 Gulko 6.5/14 0 ** 01 1 1

4 Romanishin 6/14 10 ** 10
