U.S. Chess Title Won By Brooklyn Boy, 14

CLEVELAND, August 17 (AP)— When tournament directors last night declared defending champion Arthur B. Bisguier, 26, of New York the winner of the U.S. Chess Federation's Open Tournament, 14-year-old Bobby Fischer protested that there had been a mistake in the scoring.
Tournament officials spent an hour checking the complicated chess scoring system and then discovered they had awarded Bisguier too many points. They reversed their decision and declared Fischer the new open champion. He is the youngest player ever to win the tournament.
Fischer and Bisguier, who was dropped into second place, split the top prize of $1,500 under tournament rules.
Some 176 chess players from the United States, Canada and Mexico took part in the 12-day tournament.
