  Phony Benoni: Twelve national championships over a period of forty-two years; that's an impressive span. Can anybody beat it? Reshevsky's U.S. Championships spanned 35 years (1936-1971).

And let's hold the jokes about "joint" championships to a minimum, please.

  brankat: IM H.Johner won his first Swiss Championship at the age of 19, the last one at 61! Twelve times a Champ. His brother Paul did it 6 times!

R.I.P. master Johner.

Jun-28-10  Caissanist: The Guatemalan Carlos Armando Juarez Flores has probably won his national champtionship more than any other player. He has won his country's championship at least 22 times since 1980.
