The 12th Annual Linares Super Tournament held from February 23rd to March 14th, 1994 was the first Category XVIII event ever held. Fourteen of the world’s best players, including both World Champions, competed in a round robin format. The participants were (in order of Elo): Garry Kasparov (2805), Anatoli Karpov (2740), Alexey Shirov (2715), Vishwanathan Anand (2715), Vladimir Kramnik (2710), Vassily Ivanchuk (2710), Gata Kamsky (2695), Boris Gelfand (2685), Evgeny Bareev (2685), Alexander Beliavsky (2650), Veselin Topalov (2640), Judit Polgar (2630), Joel Lautier (2625), and Miguel Illescas-Cordoba (2590). When asked about the strength of the tournament, Kasparov famously stated that the winner could consider himself the world champion of tournament chess. Ironically, it was to be Karpov, his longtime rival, who would be the man of destiny, culminating in the greatest single tournament performance of all time! Karpov won the whole ball of wax, undefeated with an astonishing 11/13!!!

  1. Most likely he was thinking a few moves ahead and didn't realise they hadn't happened yet. I do it all the time… But I suck anyway so, way more often

  2. I'm probably a bit above average for someone who doesn't know chess very well, but I lose to anyone who actually studies chess theory more than half the time, and even I have trouble imaging missing that one.

  3. I generally dont find the good moves which u ask for but this time I guessed instantly the blunder he was about to make

  4. The title is clickbait. The biggest blunder in chess history was when I let my nephew take my queen because I was sleep deprived…

  5. i think the 'already exchanged rooks' theory holds water. i'm not a totally terrible player but i occasionally play 'the move after' before the obvious next move, often with negative consequences. don't think i've been mated next move though haha

  6. I actually agree. Sometimes you analyze the moves in your head and you may be stuck with the variations and simply miss the threat that you already have covered while planning. It happens both in real and online games.

  7. Do you know how much time Karpov took to respond to this? May be just like in a Bond movie, Karpov intentionally waited until his time was down to two seconds and then, BAM! Allowing Bareev to keep kicking himself all that time while holding on the slight hope of a counter blunder from Karpov 🙂

  8. 9:53 omg that has happened to me in a tournament before. Calculated a variation till the very end, but played the second move first, costing me the game….

  9. 1:10 it's always such a pleasure to watch the French defense being played at the top level. I always feel like a noob using it because it's rarely used anywhere, the Sicilian is so popular.

  10. I'd have went Black rook takes rook at 4.20. How does that continuation go? White ignores rook initially, knight takes knight (check), double pawn for black and then white recaptures rook, I guess?

  11. I think it was Anand-Ivanchuk, where Ivanchuk missed the mate-in-one and eventually lost on time. That was my favorite blunder.

  12. I am a fairly good player, but one time I actually forgot which way my opponent's pawns were moving and moved a bishop that was easily capturable by an isolated pawn.
