Mar-11-11  Shams: Browne must have found this last-round win exceptionally gratifying, beating the tournament's top seed in splendid fashion to share equal first with Yasser, 1.5 points clear of the field. Seirawan had won four straight coming into the last round but drew with black in twenty moves.

Of course, WAZ was only a Category XI event in those days, but still a great showing for the two Americans.

<Then Kortchnoi tried to beat me with Black in the last round. During time pressure, with hundreds of people watching, the top part of the clock fell off. There was absolute chaos. He offered me a draw and I refused. It should have been a draw, but Kortchnoi usually defeats his opponents in drawn positions, so I did to him in an ending what he does to others.>

Jun-25-15  ToTheDeath: Yasser told Browne the night before the game "Get some rest, you've got a tough game with Viktor tomorrow." To which Browne replied, "NO, he's got a tough game with ME!" RIP
Jun-28-15  RookFile: I guess Browne was sure he was going to win. If I was playing a guy who usually defeats opponents in drawn positions, I'd accept his draw offer.
