Women top players – September 2011 FIDE rating list

Judit Polgar is a hero in women chess – for the 49th time she is number 1 in women ratings! In the September rating list she is once again in the 2700 club, and with a 101 elo points advantage ahead of the second Humpy Koneru, and 123 points ahead of the World Champion Yifan Hou.

While men’s top ratings are inflating like a baloon, women chess enjoys relative stability. For the past 15 lists the average rating of the top 100 women has not changed at all. The highest average was registered in March 2010 (2443), and the actual lowest in the period is now in September 2011 with 2437 ELO.

In the September list there are 15 players above 2500, and 65 players above 2400 ELO. The rating differnce between Humpy Koneru (2600) and Yifan Hou (2578) promises an exciting World Championship final in Tirana this autumn.

Here is the full September women rating list.
