Magnus Carlsen tops the FIDE Rating list for the first time. He edges out Veselin Topalov who lost points in the European Team Championships whilst ill. However Carlsen was widely expected to become number one some day, is this the start of a very long tenure?

Magnus Carlsen duly became World Number 1 at the age of 19 after the release of the FIDE rating list for January 2010. Carlsen's result in the Pearl Spring tournament in China with 8/10 took him most of the way there in the last list. Solid if not spectacular gains in the Tal Memorial and London Chess Classic confirmed it whilst Topalov's performance in four games whilst sick at the European Team Championships cost him the 5 points that is the difference. The number one spot clearly isn't Topalov's priority at the moment as he prepares himself for the World Championship match against Viswanathan Anand in 2010 (Anand's mind also seems focused on this). Vladimir Kramnik moves back to four in the world with gains in the Tal Memorial and London tournaments. Most of the rest of the top 10 seems to be fairly insignificant shuffling about except for Morozevich's fall to 17 from 10 and Wang Yue's rise to 9.

Talented youngsters Ian Nepomniachtchi and Wesley So return to the top 100.

Sergey Karjakin's move from Ukraine to Russia has been reflected official in this list. Argentina and Ukraine are major nations whose players are missing from the general list (but not the top lists) because their Federations are behind in their payments to FIDE. Their players will be restore upon payment.
