Default "Participants" in the Susan Polgar All-Star Girl's Chess Team

Susan has posted the list of participants in the first ever Susan
Polgar All-Star Girl's Chess Team at the following location:

http://susanpolgar.blogspot.com/2006...rls-chess.html

However, this appears not to be a list of "participants" but merely a
list of players who have met the ratings and age criteria.

I am certain that some of them at least have not participated in any
way in the program. Some of them play at the Marshall Chess Club. One
is a student of Yuri Lapshun.

Meanwhile, the USCF published 2 1/2 pages of free ads for this
program. Every issue of Chess Life magazine for the past 12 months
have contained these ads. See for example the ad on page 61 of the
February issue of Chess Life.

The ad says that they are "recognizing" girls who already exceed at
chess. It leads you to a website http://www.susanpolgarfoundation.org
which contains a solicitation for funds but no information such as the
names of the members of the Susan Polgar All-Star Girls Team, what
activities they have participated in and what benefits they have
received.

So, it looks like a scam just to raise funds and to get free
advertising in Chess Life magazine.

It is noteworthy that there have been complaints about these free ads
for more than six months. Nevertheless, they have continued to run.
There have been persistent denials by Mr. Truong that these ads were
free, but now Bill Hall has admitted that these are free ads.

This sounds like the title of a movie starring Marilyn Monroe.
