July rating list (Update – list correction)

July rating list (Update – list correction)

As expected, FIDE have corrected the lists. Topalov climbs back to 2nd and Adams appears only once. There seem to be also minor corrections of other players in top 100 (Gelfand drops 2 points, Kasimdzhanov also, etc.). However, we still cannot see the inclusion of Karpov on the list, even though he played 3 games for the Russian Championship.
