December 2014 ratings: A few more historic marks

by Albert Silver
12/2/2014 – It was a remarkable month and not merely because of the amount of top level chess. Although nearly everything was overshadowed by the World Championship, new historic marks were set. Alexander Grischuk had the best result of his career and rocketed to 2810, while Samuel Sevian became the youngest GM in US history. Not least is Wei Yi who is now in the Top 100 at age 15.

November was a busy month for the elite as the vast majority of the top thirty players were playing in some event or other. Among the most noteworthy were the Petrosian Memorial with a fantastic result by Alexander Grischuk, or the FIDE Grand Prix in Tashkent won by Dmitry Andreikin, both of whom scored the greatest wins of their careers. That said, unfortunately for these great events, they were quite overshadowed by the epic rematch between Magnus Carlsen and Vishy Anand for the world title.

All the King's horses and all the King's men could not take away the chess world's attention
from the World Championship

In spite of this, the number one attraction at the top is Grischuk's epic climb past the 2800 mark,
taking him to 2810 and clear world number three. This was very much thanks to his win at the
Petrosian Memorial, the greatest victory of his career, ahead of Kramnik and Aronian no less.

FIDE Top Juniors

Without a doubt, the two biggest names of this month are Wei Yi and Samuel Sevian. Both have been courting history for some time, and both have been coming up short by just that little bit, but not anymore.

Still fifteen years old, Chinese player Wei Yi, becomes the fourth youngest player since the
inception of FIDE ratings to enter the Top 100 list. The youngest is Judit Polgar at age twelve,
next comes Teimour Radjabov at age fourteen, then comes Sergey Karjakin at age fifteen,
and finally Wei Yi, just a tad older. In the picture above, Wei Yi beat Paco Vallejo in the rapid
finals at Leon
.

No less remarkable is IM Samuel Sevian, who became the youngest US grandmaster in
history at age 13 years, 10 months and 27 days, when he broke Hikaru Nakamura's previous
record. Above is an image from the history-making game.

FIDE Top Girls

Allow us to properly present 14-year-old Stavroula Tsolakidou, standing on the no.2, whose
climb in the past year or so has been utterly amazing. It is not just that she has earned over
300 Elo in the past year or so, but that she won the World U14 Girls title in 2013, and in 2014
when she opted to play in the tougher Girls U16, she came in clear second. With that kind of
fighting spirit, there is no reason she cannot eye the GM title before she is 18.

Top 100 Blitz

There were big winners and losers in blitz in November, mostly thanks to the massive Tal Memorial blitz tournament held at the World Championshiip venue in Sochi. The biggest winners were Shakhriyar Mamedyarov, who won the 22-round tournament after an amazing 10/11 start, while Grischuk compounded his result in Moscow by coming a close second. Both players won over 90 FIDE Blitz.

Thanks to his imperial start, Shakhriyar Mamedyarov took the title with 16.0/22 and moved
to world no.3 in the FIDE Blitz lists with 2866

Sevian broke the USA record from Robson, who was younger than Nakamura when he got the GM title.

When/Where did Li Chao B get such a high ratings? I'm surprised he's 2730(and only 2 points behind Ding Liren, who's China's highest rating player right now). That must be his personal best, and/or all time high ELO rating?

Bu XiangZhi seems to be like Ivanchuk. Up and down and nobody knows. Never know when he's gonna be over 2700, or under it. Seems like he's under at the moment. heh :P

And what is going on with Wang Hao? He's gone inactive and dropped quite a few points? He used to be like 2750~, then he dropped to 2735~ for awhile, and now he's lost another 20 points and hovering at 2710. What's up with that?

And Wang Yue.. 2710. Not much to say, except good to see he's back over 2700 at least. They need more invites, better PR, and more transparency. For such a strong team/country, it seems like half of them aren't taking chess seriously. They also have Hou Yifan, Wei Yi, and other promising youngsters. I'd really like to know what's going o with all of them, please make it happen chessbase! China IS the future of chess! They won the Olympiad right? And even without Li Chao or Wang Hao!

I believe anyone from 2-9 can beat anyone from the group. around the same strength

Fine achievement by U.S. junior Sam Sevian, who also has the honor of being the world's highest rated player born in the 2000's. (Not his rating at birth, just his birthday: 26 Dec 2000. I was about to say "in the 21st century," but that didn't actually start until 1/1/2001.)
