Magnus Carlsen in common with much of the top 10 didn't play any games in the last month. The London Chess Classic starting on 1st Dec will change that and the big question is if Carlsen (currently rated at 2848) can move up past Garry Kasparov's record peak rating of 2851 achieved in the July 1999 rating list. Fabiano Caruana lost 4 points, Veselin Topalov gained 2 and Vassily Ivanchuk gained 3 points climbing from 11th to 9th and pushing down Grischuk and Mamedyarov.
