Illinois Players in Top 100 Lists

ChessDad64 of the 64 Square Jungle blog spent some time putting together a list of Illinois players in the latest USCF Top 100 list. GM Yury Shulman, ranked #10 in the U.S., tops the Illinois contingent, with five other Illinois players in the Top 100.

He also lists the 64 Illinois players ("I am not making that number up," ChessDad says) aged 7-18 who appear on the Top 100 list for their age group. You can find this informative post here.

Wouldn't it be nice if every state honored its Top 100 players similarly? If readers are aware of other similar posts at blogs or websites, let me know and I'll try to include relevant links. Congratulations to ChessDad on his fine effort putting together this list.



  • You should check out the chess clun in Rockford. M.L.KING School as over 100 members in their chess club. In my opinion, they have some of the most active and motivated players and best of all, they placed 3rd at the 2007 IL State Chess Championship. Wow!
