    A good win by Nikolić, who was the top seed, with a good spread, from the crosstable:

    1. Nikolic, Predrag (2658) 4.5/6
    2. Karpov, Anatoly (2583) 3.5
    3. Hübner, Robert (2575) 2.5
    4. Timman, Jan H (2472) 1.5

    Of course, peak-Karpov was one of the all-time greats.
    “The history of the 20th century is full of examples of countries that set out to redistribute wealth and ended up redistributing poverty.”
    “There’s no point blaming the tragedies of socialism on the flaws or corruption of particular leaders. Any system which allows some people to exercise unbridled power over others is an open invitation to abuse, whether that system is called slavery or socialism or something else.”—Thomas Sowell

    Shows the importance of being younger/still focusing on chess .
    At peak - not only Karpov, but also Huebner and Timman were well ahead of Nikolic
