    Of course, that's in the future. For next year, I would say Kramnik.

    probably Aronian. he's the only other person with over 2800 fide rating.

    I don't think Deep Blue would make it...

    Kramnik is almost 90 points behind Carlsen, no way he will get anywhere close to #1 next year.

    Isn't it time Chess.com just creates another forum, sort of like "Off Topic" and "Puzzles", titled "Everything Magnus"?

    Kramnik is the only one that in really good shape could confuse Carlsen a bit...

    No, Deep Blue would probably be rated 2700 today.  He beat Kasparov when Kasparov was a little past his prime and tried faulty anti-computer strategies in one game.  Nakamura drew a far superior machine.

    Anand is 100 points behind Carlsen, hasn't been 2800 the last years, and has decreased slowly but steadily, and apart from everything else he will be 45 next year. I don't see any possible way that he will gain 100 points on Carlsen and reach the #1 spot again.
