Chessgames.com Chess Event Description
Las Palmas (1994)

The Las Palmas Chess Tournament held from May 21st to June 2nd, 1994 was a Category XVII event. Ten players, including the reigning FIDE World Champion, competed in a round robin format. The participants were (in order of Elo): Anatoli Karpov (2740), Alexey Shirov (2715), Gata Kamsky (2695), Vladimir Epishin (2675), Michael Adams (2660), Veselin Topalov (2640), Judit Polgar (2630), Joel Lautier (2625), Ivan Morovic-Fernandez (2605), and local Spanish favorite Miguel Illescas Cordoba (2590). It was to be Kamsky's finest hour at a top tournament, winning clear first with 6.5/9 undefeated, a half point over Karpov. The final standings and crosstable are as follows:
