    The 2800 club has only six members: Carlsen, Kasparov, Kramnik, Topalov, Anand, and Aronian. Kramnik, Topalov, and Anand have dropped out.

    Seems many players have gotten close lately but then collapse. Morozevich (2788), Karjakin (2788), Nakamura (2789 live), Radjabov (2793), Ivanov (2787), and Caruana (2796 live)...

    Only Caruana seems to hang close. I think he'll be the next one. Karjakin would be my second choice.

    Yeah, I would be SO unhappy if I had a piddling 2790 rating

    Then I would not be happy until I had 2791.
