Title: Higgs searches at the Tevatron

The search for the Standard Model Higgs boson in p{bar p} collisions at 1.96 TeV performed by CDF and D0 collaborations at the Tevatron collider is reported in this paper. The Higgs candidate events are reconstructed using different final states in order to optimize the sensitivity in the full range of the Higgs mass. The presented results use different statistical samples collected by the Tevatron up to 5.9 fb{sup -1}. Combining the most updated limits provided by the two experiments for all the final states analyzed, the Standard Model Higgs boson is excluded at 95% C.L. in the mass range 158-175 GeV/c{sup 2}, in good agreement with the prediction for the analyzed data sample.
