There was a double answer to the trivia quiz so revised top list:
21 Hans Jung
20 David Lawless, Brad Willis, Mike Dougherty, Ralph Gregorz
18 Rick McCleary, Michael Barron, Pino Verde
17 Dave Southam
The hardest questions were which expert chess player won the Order of Canada (only 22 of 89 correct), and time control from the first Canadian Open (24), who was the Patriarch (32), and who won the 1978 Olympiad (32). Easiest question was which organization is celebrating its 25th anniversary (75), which world leader did not play chess (70) and Anand’s wife’s name (68).
