fide_official_logo-gens-una-sumus cropped.jpgFIDE have published the official July 2012 chess rating list and Magnus Carlsen has maintained his #1 position, gaining 2 points to stand at 2837 Elo thanks to his victory at the Tal Memorial.

Lev Aronian's poor performance at the same event contributed to his rating loss of 9 points, falling to 2816 Elo but holding on to the #2 ranking.

Vladimir Kramnik's on-off status as a 2800+ player was off again as he slipped to 2799 Elo at #3 on the list.

Teimour Radjabov is the new #4 ranked player, gaining 4 precious Elo points to overhaul world champion Vishy Anand who lost 11 rating points during his world title defence against Boris Gelfand, and now stands at #5.  The rest of the top 10 remained the same.

Judit Polgar played no rated games during the two-month period, keeping her #1 ranking on the women's list at 2709 Elo.  The gap to the #2 player increased as Hou Yifan's relatively poor form cost her 6 points, dropping her to 2617 Elo.

Anna Muzychuk at #3 closed the gap to Hou Yifan thanks to her shared victory in the Kazan Grand Prix, which increased her rating 8 points to 2606 Elo.

Fabiano Caruana reinforced his status as clearly the best junior player in the world after coming close to winning the Tal Memorial and keeping his #8 ranking on the full list at 2775 Elo.

The July 2012 rating list is also the first to contain separate rapid and blitz ratings where players have played enough of the those games so far this year.  No separate ranking lists seem to be available yet, but if individual players have been assigned rapid and/or blitz ratings they appear on their profile at the FIDE ratings website. e.g Anna Muzychuk's profile here.

In future, FIDE will publish the official rating lists on a monthly basis.

    Kind of an inappropriate place to put that, but nonetheless that's an amazing accomplishment for someone under 12 years old!

    Ratings factor in emotions with the logical result -- if your relative died while you were playing in a tournament, and consequently play worse, those losses are factored in, with equal weight to your euphoric wins.

    Lots of point systems are argued against, such as IQ, and a lot of times the arguments are very valid, but the rating system is one of those things that actually is reliable, assuming the player in question plays tournament games on a regular basis.

    I don't think rating exactly depicts the strenght of a player. It deflects the changing mood of the player & not it's strenght

    ??? The FIDE ratings reflect a players current performance -end of story. "Changing moods" and "strength" reflect somebody's opinion, not everybody elses facts.  If a player's current performance doesn't reflect their actual (current) strength than I guess we can all just make up our own versions of reality to suit our own needs.

    On a french sidenote, Vachier-Lagrave, who used to be #1 in France and seen as some kind of rising star, seems now deep down the rankings.

    um.... Chess.com already has bullet, blitz, and standard.

    Anand's first top 10 position was 21 years ago, and since then he has never been so close to fall out of it as now (17 points). His biggest margin was in July 1998, when he was more than 100 points from falling out of the top 10.
