    Why is it the Philippines is missing in FIDE's latest Top Countries List? It says there are no players in the requested country.

    No mystery.  Five players are tied for the hundredth spot.  Rather than list only one, all five were listed.

    I like Judit Polgar a lot. I think she's a great player. But shouldn't there be a top "100 men" list? This would exclude Polgar and bump up the the guy who's #101 (or #105 on this list, which mysteriously goes to 104).

    @fabelhaft "Gelfand will play Wijk so he might be outside the top 20 when the match is played, he doesn't even have to lose ten points for that to happen (and will be "saving preparation" as has been said for all his and Anand's tournaments for a long time). Unusual with two title match participants without one single round robin win for more than four years, one of them even being 100 points from first place on the rating list."

    As Anand himself recently stated in an interview that is not the case for him (who knows about Gelfand however). Anand is just in a slump. Whether he will rise to the occasion come match time in May, we will see. I expect a good match. :)

    Perhaps winners of great chess tournaments have some sort of luck and their physical condition. But to be the world chess champion and challenger, it is destiny. Not to mention Anand and Gelfand.

    C'mon folks, am I the only one rooting for Shakhriyar Mamedyarov to push into the top ten this year? "Shaky" just doesn't get the respect he deserves.

    "It will be interesting that we will watch the match #16 against #4..."

    Gelfand will play Wijk so he might be outside the top 20 when the match is played, he doesn't even have to lose ten points for that to happen (and will be "saving preparation" as has been said for all his and Anand's tournaments for a long time). Unusual with two title match participants without one single round robin win for more than four years, one of them even being 100 points from first place on the rating list.

    Although some may not agree with him dropping out of the championship cycle, he is showing here that he obviously didn't need to participate in it.

    And with ridiculous knockout tournaments and blitz matches deciding who gets to play for the championship, standings won't really matter anyway...

    @ Sensejus Laughing  'Amateur' in the sense of 'not a professional', of course. Luke has a full-time job outside of chess, so he doesn't earn his living as a chess pro.
