I noticed that many of the participants are those who didn't make it to the finals in the 2010 Chopin Competition, except for Francois Dumont (5th prize, but at least he's got a prize) and Nicolay Khozyainov (no prize, but hey, he made it to the finals :P).

Claire Huangci (semi-finalist)
Fei-Fei Dong (semi-finalist)
Marcin Koziak (semi-finalist)
Giuseppe Greco (Round 1 eliminated (OUCH...))
Jayson Gillham (semi-finalist)

Gee, it's like 2010 Chopin Competition semi-finalist reunion or something.

What could their motives be? Any speculations? Any comments? ;D

When i was making the rounds, i never showed up twice at the scene of the murder.  But lots of them did. It's called "try and try again".
