US Championship 1991
Compiled by suenteus po 147
--*--

The 1991 United States Chess Championship held in Los Angeles, California from July 27th to August 9th was a knock out tournament. Two rounds of preliminary, quarterfinal, and semi-final games were played at standard time controls. All tied matches went to playoff rounds played with two games at G/30, with tied matches going to two games of G/15 until a decisive two game result was reached. All G/15 tiebreak matches have been excluded from this championship collection. Kamsky emerged as the new US Champion, losing only one game (the second final match game against Benjamin) out of all his matches.
