Kasparov's opponents at the tournament in St. Louis will be the first number of the Armenian national team Levon Aronian, American GMs Fabiano Caruana and Hikaru Nakamura, Russian GMs Sergey Karjakin and Ian Nepomniachtchi, Viswanathan Anand (India), David Navara (Czech Republic), Lenier Dominguez (Cuba) and Le Quang Liem (Vietnam).
