Their top ten are Kasparov, Karpov, Fischer, Botvinnik, Capablance, Lasker, Korchnoi, Spassky, Smyslov and Petrosian, in that order. The top Briton is Nigel Short at no 52.

His victory at Linares in a category 16 tournament half-a-point ahead of Anatoly Karpov is undoubtedly one of the achievements of the year. It would, however, be wrong to assume that Ivanchuk is an unknown quantity because he finished equal first in the world junior championship in Adelaide. The title was awarded to Joel Lautier on number of wins, but Ivanchuk, Serper and Gelfand had all scored the same number of points as the Frenchman.
