The 40th Annual Hoogovens Chess Tournament was a category XIII event held in Wijk aan Zee, The Netherlands in 1978. 12 top grandmasters competed in a round robin format in the prestigous A event. The participants were (in order of ELO): Viktor Korchnoi (2665), Henrique Mecking (2630), Lajos Portisch (2630), Jan Timman (2585), Oscar Panno (2580), Gennadi Sosonko (2575), Lubmoir Kavalek (2570), Anthony Miles (2565), Ulf Andersson (2545), Miguel Najdorf (2525), Hans Ree (2500), and Paul Van der Sterren (2400). Portisch edged out top seed Korchnoi by half a point in the final. This was another famous tournament the Russians boycotted due to Korchnoi's participation.
