The July rating list sees Veselin Topalov hold firm as number one with an increase of a point. World Champion Viswanathan Anand has a couple of games and gains 5 points. Magnus Carlsen holds at three. Levon Aronian jumps to 4 in the world and Dmitry Jakovenko to 5 ahead of Vladimir Kramnik who didn't play in this quarter. Peter Svidler jumps back up to 12 in the world, a position formally held by Vassily Ivanchuk who had a catastrophic quarter dropping to 30 in the world. His win in Bazna is hopefully a sign of a return to form and that will be included next time. I saw some discussion that they were discussing changing the calculation of the list involving the k-factor (FIDE had a meeting recently) but apparently this didn't go through. It is a bit astonishing that 2635 would have been enough to be in the top 100 last time, now this mark has risen to 2641. Karpov has dropped from 86 to 98 in the world without playing a game. Towards the middle of the list the changes don't seem so dramatic however. Apparently the most likely explanation is a blip. They are moving to a list coming out every two months either now or very shortly.
