I wonder if Kramnik got an invite.

It's a reasonably strong field, but lacks the big names that it had in previous years.

Is Topalov being shunned by his fellow players because of the cheating allegations against him, and also the allegations made by him against Kramnik during the WCC title match in Elista?
