April FIDE rating list

FIDE logoThe FIDE April rating list has been published. Magnus Carlsen maintains the first position with the same points as in March. Despite playing some games, they are all in the Candidates tournament, which is not finished yet and thus not counted.

Similar is the situation of most Candidates participants, except for Kramnik and Gelfand who lose 9 and 1 points respectively from the Zurich Chess Challenge. The winner of that competition, Fabiano Caruana, is back to the top 10, after gaining 12 points, the highest rating gain from all top 100 players.

Rating losses are more significant in this list: Ferenc Berkes -28, Andrei Volokitin -23, and Yu Yangui -21 are the players with highest rating drops.

What Chessdom has been noting as a trend for the past one year is confirmed – the top 100 ratings officially suffer deflation, and are back to the levels of the September 2011 rating list with rating average being exactly 2700 ELO, despite having Carlsen, Aronian, and Kramnik at much higher levels on the top.

The 2700 club has not significantly increased either, as currently 50 players are above 2700, compared to 48 players in September 2011.
