|Albert Beauregard Hodges was Champion of the Manhattan Chess Club in 1893 and 1899. He played in thirteen USA vs Great Britain Cable Matches without losing a game and defeated Jackson Whipps Showalter in a match in 1894 in New York. Immediately after this he announced his retirement from active tournament play because of business commitments, though he continued to participate occasionally for many years.|

<Hodges is also an expert checker player. On his vacation trips he always looks up the local checker champ. Once he met the champion of New England, played him five agames and won the majority. The checker player asked him who he was. When Hodges told him, the New Englander said:
"No, your name isn't Hodges. I know all the good checker players in the United States but I don't know that name."
"That's quite possible," Hodges replied. "I quit playing checkers before you were born.">
|Feb-06-14|| ||Karpova: On page 159 of the May-June 1911 'Wiener Schachzeitung' is a nice chart of the USA vs Great Britain Cable matches from 1896 to 1911 (no matches from 1904 to 1906). 13 matches with 6 wins for America and 6 wins for Great Britain, additionally a draw in 1901. Both had acquired 64 points in total.|
Hodges participated in all 13 matches and scored 9 points!
The chart is useful for anyone wanting to go deeper intoit, as it provides the exact dates and number of games.
