  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."

Obituary by Stewart Reuben [28/4/05],

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.

Dec-06-10  sneaky pete: The 1963 game against Fischer was played by James Fuller.
Feb-14-13  Rob Fuller: The games shown here in years 1962 to 1977 are not John Fuller the former british correspondence champion and british boys champion.
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- 6,6Bc4,Bd7,70-0,Nc6.8a4,e6,9Be3,Be7,10Kh1,Qc7.11-

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.

  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.

May-15-18  Robin J Fuller: John A Fuller was Coventry Chess Champion and Coventry Lightning Chess Champion for numerous years in the 1960s.

During this period John also wrote a chess article in the Coventry Evening Telegraph.

Harrow Chess Champion and Middlesex County Champion in 1950/51

May-15-18  Robin J Fuller: Harrow Chess Champion 11 out of 12 years 1950 to 1961 including 8 years in a row; the only year he missed was because of absence due to ill health.
