Death List - Reopening Heaven's Gate...

...or Hell, as the case may be!  Sorry...these chess masters escaped my original death list.  My bad.  You will recognize them because their names were given to famous openings, attacks, and defenses.  However, after googling 5 pages deep, I'm still unsure on the cause of death for most of them.

Anyway, here they are...
