Fide logo

The March FIDE rating list is headed by the World Champion Viswanathan Anand. He is on top with 2817 points after gaining 7 points during the recent Tata Steel Chess. Magnus Carlsen and Levon Aronian are above 2800, gaining 1 and 3 points respectively.

Kramnik, Ivanchuk, Karjakin, Topalov, Nakamura, Mamedyarov, and Grischuk are the rest of the players in top 10. Interesting to note, places 5 to 9 are squeezed in just 7 rating points. Ivanchuk is 5th with 2779 and Mamedyarov is 9th with 2772.

Judith Polagar is keeping her place as top woman, while Humpy Koneru and World Champion Yifan Hou are the other players above 2600.

Fabiano Caruana, who recently commented live on Chessdom, is top junior, followed by Anish Giri, Le Quang Liem, and Wesley So. Top girls are Yifan Hou, Harika Dronavalli, and Ju Wenjun.
