  1. Thanks for the info on the new title holders. However, you did an oopsie! You stated:

    “Grandmaster Steven Zierk and Women’s Grandmaster Jennifer Yu are among the new American title holders”

    And then:

    “Find the full list below”

    But as it turns out neither Yu nor Zierk are listed below. You don’t have categories for GM or WGM.
