Abstract After twenty years of traveling from city to city across the United States, the ACM North American Computer Chess Championship came back to the place of its birth, the New York Hilton Hotel, where the competitions began in 1970. This latest five-round event ended in a two-way tie for first place between MEPHISTO and DEEP THOUGHT/88. Finishing in a two-way tie for third place were HITECH and M CHESS. A total of 10 teams participated, and the level of play was at the low grandmaster level. A special three-round end-game championship was won by MEPHISTO, who also captured the prize for the best Small Computing System. A total of \$8000 in prizes was divided up among the winners.
