Do not adjust your set...it's not three months since the last list was published, but today marks the start of FIDE's new bi-monthly rating lists. 

Since the advent of the unofficial live rating list for players over 2700 Elo, there has been pressure to update the official list of all FIDE-rated players more often.

King of the hill is still Veselin Topalov (pictured), followed by world champion Vishy Anand. Lev Aronian's strong performance in the recent Jermuk Grand Prix lifts him to third place, just above Magnus Carlsen in fourth.

The winner of the Jermuk Grand Prix, Vassily Ivanchuk, is the biggest climber, deservedly regaining a top-10 spot at #8, up from #30 last time!

Hikaru Nakamura continues to make headway at #16, up 10 places, but he will lose points following his dismal illness-ridden performance in the just-finished NH Tournament.

Nigel Short leaps over 2700 Elo again, regaining the title of top-rated English player from former top 10 player Mickey Adams, who falls alarmingly to #50.

It's sad to note that former world champion Anatoly Karpov has dropped out of the top 100 for the first time since...well, probably since official ratings started in 1970!  A string of poor recent results sees the great champion fall to 2619 Elo, which ranks him at #140.
