World Junior Championship (1990)

Not all games are available but the standings are correct.

"Gurevich has become youth world chess champion with minimal difference in Santiago in Chile. His main opponent, the Russian Alexey Shirov, had the same point total. However, the tiebreaking system for awarding the world title was against him."

De Telegraaf, September 4, 1990, p. 21.
