Max Judd vs. Albert Hodges Match

  • Max Judd, a Saint Louis judge, defeated future US Champion Albert Beauregard Hodges in a match by a 5-2 score, and claimed the National Title because of it. Since Captain Mackenzie (who had won three National Congresses as well as beaten Judd in an 1880 match) was still alive and active, no one took the claim seriously. However, see also Judd's brushes with the title in 1890 and 1904.
