CalChess State Scholastic Championship! and episode 6

The 33rd CalChess State Scholastic Championship was played last weekend, in
San Jose, California. By the way, San Jose's population will go over 1 million very soon!

In the highschool division, a couple of people tied for first, including Boglarka Erdos.
She's a strong chess player from Hungary! I'd like to congratulate her. Barbara and I actually played
her last year at the 2007 all female chess tournament in Palo Alto, California.

Chess Diva #6 will be recorded next month! We'll be having a special woman guest in the studio!
More on this later!
