August 2012 FIDE Rating List

fide_official_logo-gens-una-sumus cropped.jpgThe official August 2012 chess rating list has been released by FIDE.  It's the first of the new monthly rating lists.  Previously lists had been published every 2 months, which was itself a recent improvement on the long-established practice of quarterly rating lists.

The increased frequency is partly being driven by the advent of 'live' rating websites such as 2700Chess.com, which track rating changes for the top ranked players on a daily basis.

As the official lists become more frequent, then the changes between each are necessarily fewer.

The top 100 ranked players:

    which petrosian is this? a junior!?

  • 2 years ago

    _HuRRiiCaNe_

    Chill the only World champion you should be worrying about is Karpov hes below the top 100 list, i believe hes rated in the mid 2600s

    DaBigOne

    Oh OK, I wasn't familiar with the other Petrosian.

    @DaBigOne Ok, so Petrosian is #90 on the list, what is so special about it? It isn't the former world champion Petrosian, just another Grand Master with similar name from Armenia. I believe he was named after him though, forget his story... he was born in 1984.

    Anyone notice Petrosian is #90 on the list?? Undecided

    Who cares if you drop out of the top 100 ? you're still the World Champion

    like does anyone cares what is Karpov's ranking now ? people still remember him as the legendary World Champion.

    The biggest thing here, is Anand falling out of the top five. That has to be a massive fallout for him, I'm not sure if he's that affected by it, but it might cause him psychological Chess issues. Wowzer

    If Carlsen manages to get like 2848 if he wins against Bacrot tomorrow, than one more decent tournament would get him past Kasparovs record, and then FIDE list would get updated (rather than waiting 4 months in which Carlsen would participate in 2-3 more tournaments, which means he can lose the 2851+ live rating).

    Nice improvement from FIDE.
