FIDE Rating List April 2009 ()

Ratings April 2009

Veselin Topalov tops the rating list for the 3rd time in a row. World Champion Viswanathan Anand is 2nd in the world.

Veselin Topalov tops the rating list for the 3rd time in a row. World Champion Viswanathan Anand is 2nd in the world. Magnus Carlsen moves up to three in the world in spite of some up and down performances recently. A funny indication as to what has happened in this list is Kramnik's move from 8 to 4 in the world without playing a rated game. Radjabov is up from 6 to 5 in the world but losing rating points. Alexander Morozevich dropped 20 points, Vassily Ivanchuk drops 33 points and out of the top 10, a real drop in form and consistancy for him. Alexander Grischuk goes into the top 10.
