|Dec-29-04|| ||Benzol: John A Fuller
Born 12th May 1928
He was British Correspondence champion in 1954 and 1955.
|May-12-08|| ||whiteshark: "John A Fuller died in March 2005.
He had been inactive as a chessplayer for many years, but played with some distinction in the Hastings Premier of 1949 scoring 3/9 and of 1955 scoring 3.5/9.
He was typical of this era of strong English players who would unquestionably have become an international master, had the opportunities of today been available then."

|May-12-08|| ||pastpawn: I am wondering if the John A Fuller who played the 1962, 1963 and 1977 games above is actually the same as the British Correspondence Champion John A Fuller (who played the games up to 1956).|
It seems odd that these 3 games are played in the US, and also appear to contain blunders you wouldn't normally expect from a master-level player.

|Feb-14-13|| ||Nosnibor: I first met John Fuller over the board in a BCFQualifier(Zonal stage)This was March 1967 and he told me that he had not played OTB chess for 5 years.He was an extremely amiable person.The game went as follows:-White:J.K.Robinson Black:J.A.Fuller,Sicilian Defence,1e4,c5,2Nf3,d6,3d4,cxd4,4Nxd4,Nf6,5Nc3,a-
4,Rf5,34Qg4,35Rg5,Qf4 drawn by repetition of moves.In 1958 which I believe was Fullers last appearance in the British Champioship he finished fifth equal with Cafferty and Gibbs scoring 6.5/11.In doing so he beat Wade,Gibbs,Horseman and drawing with Clarke and also the defending champion.
|Feb-15-13|| ||Tomlinsky: <Rob Fuller> Which part of England did <John A Fuller> hail from may I ask? I am assuming that you are related, and that he was based here, but either way welcome to Chessgames.|
|Dec-30-13|| ||Richard Taylor: There is another John Fuller who plays chess (correspondence). He is also a poet and novelist. He is the son of Roy Fuller. This may add to the confusion of Fullers. |
Probably (almost certainly) not the J A Fuller here.
