hey! guys I just looked at the FIDE Top Players and statiscics and I found out that the chess player that was ranked #1 the most times is Garry Kasparov. Mabye you have heard of him but he is amazing! at chess, he is from russia and has been ranked #1 23 times!!! That pretty impessive.
he was ranked #1 in these categorys
top 100 players jan. 2006 rating: 2812
top 100 players oct. 2005 rating: 2812
top 100 players july 2005 rating: 2812
april 2005 rating: 2812
jan.2005 rating: 2804
oct.2004 rating: 2813
july 2004 rating: 2817
april 2004 rating: 2817
jan. 2004 rating: 2831
oct. 2003 rating: 2830
and so on...
But!!! do you really think he deserved to be#1 overall.
because there are some people on chess.com that have higher ratings? your choice
i think someone on chess.com should be ranked #1 overall
see that's what I mean!
2833 rating!!! He either is a gm or he is just amazing at chess and does not have a rating outside of chess.com which would my estimation be like 2100 something so.... WOW
