    a gm explained me: the difference between 2850 and 2900 is bigger than between 1200 and 1800. and you talk about 3000

    Saric looks like he is heading for 2700, and maybe 2800 later. He is good. There are a bunch of players out there thats dangerous to the top ten. Some of them comes from China. I hope there will be more open tournaments, gathering both the top-players , and a lot more. If it happens I guess the top ten must give up some points, and its a big chance that goes for Magnus too.

    I think the Olympiad was fantastic. A lot of good players got games against eachothers and the superstars.

    But, the 2700+ Super-GMs usually lose rating points, which seems unjustified.Tongue Out

    If 2700+ loose points, it is because strong players are coming up. That is how the system ideally shal work. If there are barriers, like invitational top-ten tournaments , these barriers will obstruct the natural flow of rating, and the population on each side of the barrier will get ratings less comparable to eachother.

    The super-GM´s might be slightly overrated now, because they don`t play enough outside their superenvironment.

    Magnus lost a few points in the Olympiad, and maybe his rating is more precise now.
