Vidorian retains 2018 state checkers title

Vidorian Watson Franks defended his Texas State Champion Checkers title this past weekend at the Holiday Inn Meeting Room. Players came from all across the south to compete for the $2500 Cash Prizes and Trophies. Franks said, “This is our second year to host the tournament here in Vidor. We had more players this year and even tougher competition. We had 2 Grandmasters compete with us. I was very pleased with the turnout. We had players from North Carolina and two from Florida. The two Florida players were from the Ukraine. They were very good. It proves Checker players will travel to compete.”
