This does not indicate my approval of the show come dine with me.

However, my 4 would be the following.

Victor Korchnoi
Mikhail Tal
Nigel Short
and
Alexander Alekhine
AKA Scott Stone

"Give a man fire and he's warm for a day, set fire to him and he's warm for the rest of his life."

That's Mr Stone to you, f**kface.

Mikhail Tal is popular
i was making reference to the story about him having some sort of complex about portion size and the 'threatening to smoke' story.



joking aside, i really would like to have a meal with him. i find 'my system' witty and interesting and he seems from the stories about him to be a fascinating and unique character.

Nigel Short
Tony Miles
Ivan Cheparinov
Gata Kamsky's father

Conversation probably wouldn't be sparkling, but I think it could be a fun evening all the same.

Make sure there's a partition under the table, or Short and Cheparinov would probably spend all evening kicking each other.

I can't be sure, but i think you might have missed the underlying reason why the evening would be thought to provide entertainment... :D

I just wasn't quite sure that betting on the number of them who'd still be alive by the end of the evening counted as 'entertainment' :)

Lots and lots of excellent suggestions, but two chessplayers who I'm sure everybody would enjoy having dinner with are John Nunn and Graham Lilley. They both have an eclectic range of interests, so you'd be sure of an interesting conversation.
