The well-known tournament in Hamburg (1982) was attended by eight grandmasters – Karpov, Nunn, Seirawan, Bouaziz, Spassky, Timman, Lobron and Torre. The players were divided by four into sections A and B, and played two games with each opponent. Both Karpov and Spassky won their groups (Spassky’s score in particular was stunning, as he took 5½ points out of 6 in five wins and a single draw with Timman), allowing them to meet in the final play-off in four rapid games.
The tournament was broadcast by Hamburg TV and some recordings can be found on YouTube. It is quite interesting to watch Boris Spassky smoking while playing, which would be completely unthinkable nowadays. The former world champion eventually lost to the then world champion 2½ : 1½ and his only (albeit impressive) victory is presented here.
