  3. Best Chess Players

We will start with the 10 best chess players and each will have 20 lives. Every 24 hours you can down-vote a player, giving them -2 lives, and up-vote a player, giving them +1 life. Everytime after you vote, copy and paste the last person's 10 players and their lives and then subtract 2 from a player and add 1 to a player. Last person standing wins!

This list is missing quite a few that deserves or deserved to be on the list :)

Yes I just chose the one's who I thought were the best ten, it's hard to get all the best players when you only have 10

Nonetheless it's a good list down vote Lasker. Up vote Tal
