FIDE November Ratings: Carlsen 1st, Anand 8th

Most chess fans are more interested in the live ratings these days, but after a huge number of top events have finished, it's a good idea to check on the official FIDE ratings. The World Chess Federation published its November 2013 list on Thursday. The top 3 is still 1. Magnus Carlsen, 2. Levon Aronian and 3. Vladimir KramnikHikaru Nakamura is the world's number 4 player and Alexander Grischuk is 5th.

Magnus Carlsen will of course start his first title match as the clear number one in the world — his lead over Levon Aronian, the only other 2800 player at the moment, is 69 points. With the smallest possible margin, Hikaru Nakamura is fourth, one point ahead of Alexander Grischuk. 

Fabiano Caruana is number six in the world and he is followed by 45-year-old Boris Gelfand, who has been doing very well from the moment he played Anand. The World Champion is one spot behind the Israeli GM and will play his fourth match as the world's number eight. The top 10 is completed by the two players who qualified for the 2014 Candidates Tournament via the Grand Prix: Veselin Topalov and Shakhriyar Mamedyarov.

Etienne Bacrot won no less than 19 points, and moved up from 22 to 15. That was Anish Giri's spot last month, but the young Dutch GM dropped to 20th place again. Teimour Radjabov continued his dive and is now out of the top 30.

Chessbase had a story this week on Wei Yi, who became the youngest GM in the world in February 2013, and is now the youngest player ever to cross the 2600 mark.

On the women's list, the not very active Judit Polgar is still the clear number one, but her lead over the runner-up (Hou Yifan) isn't that big anymore: 60 points. Humpy Konery is third, 11 points behind the World Champion. Just like in the men's list, the difference between number four (Anna Muzychuk) and five (Zhao Xue) is just one point.  After a good year of chess, Bela Khotenashvili is now a top 10 player.

Below you'll find the new top 100. Due to technical issues the women's list and the top 20 for juniors & girls cannot be included here but hopefully later.

    I like how Gelfand has climbed up and has become the 7th in the ratings list after the match, even surpassing Anand.

    Those who write off Anand because of his performance against Gelfand in the previous match are basing their judgement on Gelfand's rather unimpressive rank in the ratings prior to the WC, which does not represent the level of play he demonstrated in and after their match. This was Anand's point when he replied to the critics: They simply underestimated Gelfand, and now because they don't want to admit their misevaluation, they are criticising the level of the championship and his level of play. 

    Gelfands quick climb in the ladder is another sign of the high level of chess played by both him and Anand. The coming WC will be much more closer than expected I think, and I'm totally rooting for Anand.
