    If not, so how is it possible that engines like Houdini or Stockfish got over 3100???

    As flawless as Carlsen is, he draws way too much to cross 3000. IMO

    When you're 2950, a draw against a "mere" 2820 will cost you major rating points.

    That is not to say we've seen the last of broken records from Magnus. He has topped Kasparovs highest rating, at the tender age of 22. He is going to be on top for a long time.

    Just like Tiger Woods was going to win nineteen majors, and Dwight Gooden was going to win 300 games, with 4000 strikeouts...

    I think if Carlsen passed 3000 elo he would be deemed a nickname similarly to Johnny Manziel: Magnus Chess.

    Dwight Gooden was amazing.
