    @LE BRUIT QUI COURT
    I can think of at least three others :-).

    @Jacob Aagaard
    But that was the catch, wasn’t it? How can I know if you hired Kasparov or Kramnik?

    But still my list is the strongest 🙂

    Lev Psakhis, Boris Alterman, Artur Yusupov, Mihail Suba.

    Hint: Jacob didn’t say the authors should be there as players. You should definitely check for QC-authors among the trainers… 🙂

    It is very tricky question: you cannot know if Jacob is asking about all the authors who have written ANY book for Quality Chess or just the team which is NOW writing a book for QC.

    I was thinking about other writers who has written for QC, but I cannot remeber anyone more than listed by the 1st winner of the book.

    Maybe one of these players might try to fit in the list? Boris Alterman, David Vigorito, Tiger Hillarp Persson, Dorian Rogozenko, Glenn Flear.

    I’ll be at the Olympiad as a trainer. By the way, is there a list with the trainers from the organisers? I haven’t found it…

    @Chess King
    I have a feeling Alterman might drop by, but I have not heard from him. Yusupov is not going and I doubt Suba is either. But yes, you should include trainers and other officials.

    I think Glenn Flear might be there, Tiger will not, Vigorito and Rogozenko I could not imagine showing up. Psakhis I would also assume would not show up. But yes, Nikos is one.

    So with Flear and Ntirlis added and Bauer certainly not showing up, we are at 17?

    Maybe Milos Pavlovich.

  10. Jacob Aagaard

    No idea 🙂

    I cannot check it now, but won’t GM Markos will be also at Istanbul?

    @Nikos Ntirlis
    I assume so – and he was not on my list!
