Revised April 3, 2019

I have created a Denker GMs Hall of Fame with the help of US Chess who did some research on the Denker participants who have achieved the GM title.  Thanks to Walter Brown and the busy staff at US Chess we have a list of fifteen Denker players who have gone on to become Grandmasters.  This list appears in Alpha order with the state affiliate and year/years of Denker participation:
