IM Stephen Muhammad won the Alabama State Championship held over America's Labor Day Weekend with an undefeated 5-1. Bradley Denton tied with the same formula, but Muhammad had superior tiebreaks. Muhammad has played sparingly this year limiting himself primarily to tournaments in the southern U.S.  Frank Johnson played in the under-2000 section and tied for 1st.
