Magnus Carlsen's win in the London Chess Classic gained him 13 rating points and took him to 2861 10 points past Garry Kasparov's 1999 record rating. Vladimir Kramnik reclaimed the number two spot after gaining 15 points in London whilst Levon Aronian lost the same amount. World Champion Viswanathan Anand dropped to 7 in the world as Sergey Karjakin overtook him. Hikaru Nakamura jumped 9 points and back to 9 in the world and Shakhriyar Mamedyarov edged past Alexander Grischuk to complete the top 10. I use the full rating list for working on tournaments and games and noticed that for Basel players outside the top 100 from Hungary (now back in as of 3rd Jan) and Montenegro don't have ratings, presumably their Federations have fallen behind in payments. This and the complete removal of players from the list (eg 20 English players who aren't ECF members, Cubans who have left Cuba those are just the ones I know about) is not terribly convenient if you actually want to use the list for real work.
