  GrahamClayton: Krauss holds the unusual distinction of winning the championships of three different US states - North Carolina, Kansas (1959, 1960) and Idaho (1961).

  TheFocus: There are quite a few players that are multi-state winners.

  HeMateMe: Has AJ Goldsby ever won the Florida championship? Just curious. I'm not really sure what type of competition he would have there.

BTW, do your recall, in the early 1980s, a national chess league formed, where clubs around the country played against each other? The south had a number of such clubs. I think Sports Illustrated did a story on one such club. The SI writer marvelled about a player who, early in a middle game, predicted he would win the game exaclty 22 moves later, and he did just that. The was a 2300 player, I believe.

Jan-13-12  King Death: <HeHateMe> <AJ> claimed 3 different state titles on some page or other.

There was a national phone league going back to about 1975 or 1976 that lasted in to the early 80s, although I never played in it. The winning team in 1976 (I think it was) made the cover of Chess Life & Review, with a name something like the Washington Plumbers. Just as long as they didn't call themselves the CREEPs or something.

Jan-13-12  Shams: <HeMateMe> <Has AJ Goldsby ever won the Florida championship? Just curious. I'm not really sure what type of competition he would have there.>

He has never won it, at least not under his own name. (He was in the military, who knows...)

Since 2006 GM Julio Becerra has won every year, it looks like-- though no 2011 champion is yet listed.

I think <AJ> placed impressively in the LA State Championships, though.

Sep-03-15  wrap99: It is possible he was a professional mathematician -- I played someone with this name in 1978 at the US Open.

No idea, but there have been other strong players from that state; I rather doubt that he would have been the strongest player in the state at any point.

<....BTW, do your recall, in the early 1980s, a national chess league formed, where clubs around the country played against each other? The south had a number of such clubs....>

There was a league for some years; I played one match for the Boston side just after moving to that city in spring 1982.
