13th US Championship Tournament, 1960-1961
Compiled by Resignation Trap
--*--

Work in Progress
This tournament marked Bobby Fischer's fourth straight title as US Champion. It was also a zonal tournament.

Not all games from this tournament are currently available, and only 15 of the 66 games are on the http://www.chessgames.com database as of today (April 20, 2008): all of Fischer's games, plus four others.

The twelve players and their USCF ratings according to the December 1960 supplement:

1. Robert James Fischer 2641 2. Samuel Reshevsky 2632 3. William Lombardy 2555 4. Robert Byrne 2535 5. Pal C Benko 2501 6. Arthur Bisguier 2501 7. Raymond Allen Weinstein 2448 8. Herbert Seidman 2417 9. Anthony Saidy 2412 10. James T Sherwin 2411 11. Hans Jack Berliner 2406 and 12. Charles I Kalme 2374

Today (April 20, 2008) I uploaded Benko-Bisguier from Round 5 (0-1) and Bisguier-Kalme from Round 9 (1-0). These two games were in the book <The Art of Bisguier>.
