A brief summary:

Between 1969 and 1979, the Elo rating of Gaprindashvili moved between 2390 and 2450 (peak at 1972)

The rating to rank Nr. 100 of men moved between 2480 and 2500, of which Gaprindashvili fell 30 to 95 points short. Her ranking peaked at 148-174.

In January 1979, Gaprindashvili had lost Woman Champion post to Chiburdanidze - but Gaprindashvili still had the higher rating, 2405 against Chiburdanidze´s 2380.

jsaepuru

The 1978 world championship looks convincing. 9 draws, 4 wins for Chiburdanidze, 2 for Gaprindashvili.

So why did Gaprindashvili lose only 20 points and Chiburdanidze win only 40, failing to pass Gaprindashvili?

Do you think the 100 point rating jump of women between July 1986 and January 1987 was genuine?

Fixedthx

Joan of Arc 2720

Marie Curie 2770

Harriet Tubman 2740

Elanor Roosevelt 2675

Princess Diana 2178

Emilia Earhart 2665

Marie Antoinette 2612

Don't you remember Henry XIII had Anne Bolynne beheaded because Jane Seymour had a higher elo.

Note that if you were to apply the 100 point boost retroactively to Gaprindashvili in 1969-1979, she´d have been in top 100 all that time.
