FIDE's April 2006 ratings – revised

4/12/2006 – FIDE has done a silent update to their April 2006 rating list. Vassily Ivanchuk and Nigel Short had both lost points from games they had never played. Ivanchuk is now at number seven (originally ten) and Short has moved up ten ranks, from 37 to 27. Efimenko lost 14 points and dropped 15 places. Corrected list (updated).

Corrected FIDE April 2006 Rating Lists

The most significant change is to the rating and ranking of Vassily Ivanchuk, who was 10th in the originally published list with 2723 points and 28 games played. One of these, a league game, was not actually played and recorded as a loss for Ivanchuk. Removing it raised the Ukrainian GM to rank 7 with a rating of 2731, eight points more than before.

Nigel Short too was suffering from a game he had never played. Removing it took him from rank 37 to 27, with an Elo of 2677 instead of originally 2668.

Vugar Gashimov has gained 15 points in the revised list (2659 instead of 2644) and moved from rank 66 to 49. This is recorded in the revised Top 100 Players list, but not reflected in the Top 20 Juniors (where he is still at 2644).

Zahar Efimenko has three more games in the revised list and moves down from rank 43 to 58. He got 14 points deducted from the originally published rating, moving from 2662 to 2648.

The following list was corrected manually by us, with all changes given in boldface. The method we used to revise the list and pull out the statistics given above was cumbersome and may have resulted in errors. You can compare the original list with the new list as now published on the FIDE site.
