This list is a little different from the (as of 7/14)list. Some are new, changed, or dropped. This list is more reliable, I imagine :-)

The confirmed chess players of Northern California, Rebekah Liu, and SP World Open Qualifer, Alisha Chawla are on a TV show called "Chess Diva", produced in California. The show is to promote more girls and women to play chess since it is a male dominated game.
Please watch the show and learn about both of these talented players!
