Grischuk Third on Already Outdated May 1 Rating List

Alexander Grischuk moved up to third place in the world rankings on the May 1st FIDE rating list. Thanks to a splendid Russian Team Championship, the Russian grandmaster won 15 points to reach 2792 which is 8 points more than Vishy Anand. Magnus Carlsen and Levon Aronian continue to occupy spots #1 and #2. The May list was published by FIDE on April 30th, one day before the end of the Shamkir Chess tournament.

Magnus Carlsen improved his personal (and humanity's) rating record by one point on the May 1st rating list: the World Champion went from 2881 to 2882. This was because of his win over Vladimir Georgiev in the Norwegian league on 22 March, which was not calculated by FIDE on its April 1st list.

But that 2882 does not include the Shamkir Chess tournament, where Carlsen lost 1.2 points. This event ended on May 1st - the publication date of the rating list, which was actually already published on April 30th. It's a pity that it couldn't include the Gashimov Memorial, because this way the new top 10 was already outdated as soon as it was published.

The biggest changes at the top of the FIDE list are Alexander Grischuk's jump to third place, and Leinier Dominguez entering the world's top 10. Romain Edouard, the winner of the Dubai Open, jumped from #77 to #54. Loek van Wely dropped from #62 to #88 due to bad performances in Australia.

Below you'll find the op 26 of today's live ratings of 2700 players which includes the Shamkir Chess tournament (and one win by Caruana in the Italian Team Championship, by the way). Below that, the FIDE May 1 ratings, general and women.

    It's interesting to note that at 18 Carlsen was already a 277x rated player..

    ah ... I did not 'think' that Nakamura had peformed all that well at the Shamkir Tournament; yet he managed to improve his rating by 1.4 points!  Just goes to show the level of the competition in today't top tourneys.  Well done Naka!  :)

    @XDave121X  "at the moment Carlsen almost never loses to anyone below top 20 (maybe even top 10) except Radjabov..."

    Yes, it's interesting to think about Magnus's losses because there are so few of them. He did lose one game to Wang Hao in round 8 of the 2013 Norway Chess tournament. Wang Hao's current rank and rating are 24 and 2729.4, but his rating at the time was I think 2743, which probably put him slightly better than a rank of 20.

    If FIDE insists on publishing the list on April 30th, the least they can do is make an update to it after the Gashimov Memorial and other tournaments ended. FIDE's lists don't have much credibility if they're only accurate for 24 hours.

    Apparently, Ivanchuk and Gelfand are one and the same personWink.

    So maybe Hou Yifan will enter the top 100 eventually. And then maybe another woman, and another...... At what point will they add a third list: Top 100 Men? Why don't they have one now? If they did, whoever the guy is that's #101 now, would get bumped into the top 100 list.

    Chess.com is pretty nice ending the live ratings picture to top 26 aka Radjabov the guy that recently beat carlsen and used to be just 2713 which is 168 points below Carlsen's old 2881 ( which is now 2882 lulz)

     

    I know rating is just a number but at the moment Carlsen almost never loses to anyone below top 20 (maybe even top 10) except Radjabov which is underrated atm :)

    Also worthy of mentioning is that there's a new "youngster" who just entered the 2700 club: Hungary's Richard Rapport.  After Anish Giri, he's the only other under-20 person currently rated above 2700.

    It may not be long before Women's World Champion Yifan Hou enters the top-100 also and joins Judit Polgar in that club; Yifan Hou needs another 22 rating points for this.  But this is yet to be seen...

    Kind of funny to see the Gelfand and Ivanchuk are the same age, and have exactly the same rating now, and both moved 1 point up.

    I believe they are also coming from the same chess school as youngsters, isn't it  ? Smile

    I saw Ivanchuk play at the European Youth Championship in Arnhem many years ago.

    Ivanchuk won there against my (back then) Modern Benoni hero David Norwood in a sharp game in which Ivanchuk already showed splendid technique.
