Mac Banks Wins World Mail-Play Championship!

American Mac Banks wrestled the World Mail-Play Championship from the hands of Englishman George Miller in 2004 after completing a tough schedule against the world's leading correspondence players with a final score of 12-1-107. Miller claimed ownership of the title after defeating American Jerry Childers in 1998 and held on to the title by virtue of a drawn match against Banks in 2002.
