The "Credit Suisse Masters," as it was called, was a round robin, category XVII tournament organized directly after the PCA world championship. Garry Kasparov had defeated Vishwanathan Anand and had then joined ten other top rated grandmasters for the final event in the year's series. The complete list of participants include (in order of ELO): Garry Kasparov (2795), Vassily Ivanchuk (2740), Vladimir Kramnik (2730), Artur Yusupov (2680), Nigel Short (2645), Rafael Vaganian (2645), Viktor Korchnoi (2635), Joel Lautier (2635), Jaan Ehlvest (2630), Boris Gulko (2620), and Jan Timman (2590). Nine of the original top ten PCA rated grandmasters who started the series finished it. Anand dropped out of Novgorod and was replaced by Topalov. Here, Topalov was replaced by Lautier. Korchnoi was added to the competition as a local grandmaster to represent Switzerland. In the surprise of the year, world champion Kasparov finished with just an even score, having dropped one game to the tournament co-winner Ivanchuk. Both he and Kramnik finished with 7/10 each, capitalizing on the speculation that both players were strong enough to soon become world champions themselves. Although Kramnik would eventually succeed in this respect, the title continues to elude Ivanchuk. The final standings and crosstable follow:} 1. e4 e6 2. d4 d5 3. Nc3 Bb4 4. e5 b6 5. a3 Bf8 6.
