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!

Dream Chess Lineup for Any World Championship Tournament

Bobby Fischer - Because he is Fischer
Gary Kasparov - Because he is so high up on the chess pedestal that everyone else can only look up
Mikhail Tal - For bringing a hi-tech felicity to chess when there were no computers
Tigran Petrosian - For how to use the King as a piece in defense

Magnus Carlsen - For being cool, lazy (by self admission), and still being No. 1 chess player in the world
Efim Geller - Well! If Fischer is there, we need Geller

Alexander Alekhine - For his scientific approach to chess
Mir Sultan Khan - The torchbearer of Indian chess and a talented chess player as ever can be
Anatoly Karpov - An artist whose method was it all

Judit Polgar - A lady who needs no reason for any chess season, for flying to a chess stratosphere no woman on the planet has yet touched 
Alexandra Kosteniuk - Blaze of glory attacking play, no draws, all fights to the last sigh; Real chess queen as blogger, movie star, writer, world champion in both classical and chess960.

(P.S. Before you protest yes, not everyone could be included!)
