Rating development of the top ten

Looking at the top of the rating list we are immediately struck by the switch on place two: Indian star Vishy Anand gained eight points to replace Russian Vladimir Kramnik, who lost 13. The perennial Garry Kasparov lost 14 points (mainly in Linares) to hit a new low, but in spite of this he is still 43 points ahead of his nearest rival.

Kramnik's challenger Peter Leko of Hungary is number four, up from tenth in the last list. Bulgarian Veselin Topalov has remained fairly stable, overtaking St. Petersburg GM Peter Svidler, who lost 14 points (mainly in Wijk). The other big loser is Alexei Shirov, who lost 23 point to drop from 5th to 14th.
