fide_official_logo-gens-una-sumus cropped.jpgFIDE's more frequent monthly official rating lists mean that fewer changes occur between each successive list (August list here).

The main news in the top 10 list for September is that Hikaru Nakamura gains two places to claim the #5 spot, swapping places with Sergey Karjakin, and above the current world champion Vishy Anand at #6.

Some of the biggest movers on the list are due to the results at the 2012 Biel tournament, with Winner Wang Hao gaining 8 places at #15, and Anish Giri gaining 15 places at #20.

World #1 Magnus Carlsen gained 6 rating points at Biel and his new rating of 2843 Elo is just 8 points away from Garry Kasparov's record 1999/2000 peak of 2851 Elo.

The live rankings updated on a daily basis can be found at www.2700chess.com.  The current live list is changing rapidly as results from the Olympiad are coming thick and fast!

    Carlsen is not playing in the chess olympiacs ..

    marklimpin

    Arrogant Carlsen deserved not to be No. 1 he doesn't want to represent his own country. shame on him.

  • 2 years ago

    kwiksilber

    yup....Wesley is promising, with his age and skilled play...impressive.

    corpsporc

    Maybe Carlsen will be the first to reach 2900.

    thought_control

     GM Carlsen will surely break GM Kasparov's record.  What are the highest computer engines running at these days?  In the three thousands?  The engines are not too far removed from the elite anyway...
