Absolute Correspondence Chess Championship Participants

The Absolute Correspondence Chess Championship was the idea of former USCF Correspondence Chess Director Jack Straley Battell, back in 1975, and the first Absolute began in 1976. The Absolute Review was the idea of one of its participants, Dave Burris. Together both men not only respected the importance of Master level play in Correspondence Chess but each shared the vision to keep it alive. It is to these two champions we dedicate the Absolute CC Championship and the Absolute Review.

As bios are created for each player, a link will be offered. If a bio is not offered please submit a bio, or even an update, to the US Chess Federation, marking it to the attention of Joan DuBois - Absolute Project. You can also email your bio and photo to: joandubois@uschess.org. Games can be emailed to Bob Rizzo, rrizknight@juno.com I'd like to thank Alex Dunne for many of the biographies which appeared in his, Modern Chess Masterpieces, copyrighted in 1994, as well as player information from Alex's many "Check Is In The Mail" columns.

Currently we have over 534 games which many of you have graciously submitted, but we need more! Games!
