CHICAGO, Sunday (AAP). — >

Walter Browne, 25, an international grandmaster and twice Australian champion, won the title of US Chess Champion on Friday when he finished with a draw in his 13th and final round of the national tournament, Associated Press reported.

He was competing against the 13 top players in the nation, excluding Bobby Fischer who declined to enter.

Browne's attitude about beating Fischer?

"I wouldn't beat him right now", he said. "I think I could beat him in an odd match, but he's better".>
