Dream Chess Lineup for Any World Championship Format

Saturday May 19 is rest day at the Anand Gelfand 2012 world chess championship being played in Moscow. Here is a fun post for the rest day. Maybe, if there were a chess tournament to decide the strongest chess player in the world, we could invite a dream line-up. No statistics whether this is a recommended format or something. This is just a fun idea. Of course, we are leaving out Viswanathan Anand and Boris Gelfand because they are already playing. You might imagine the chess we would witness as fans if such a tournament were to take place!
