FIDE January 2004 Rating List

The new FIDE Rating list has been released, with Garry Kasparov, who played six rated games in the European Club Cup, gained a single point and is as always clearly in the lead, 54 points ahead of his nearest rival. Vladimir Kramnik and Vishy Anand are still 11 points apart. Peter Svidler had a superb period and gained 24 points, joining Kramnik and Anand in the top bracket. Another achiever is the occasionally erratic Alexander Morozevich, who was at place 16 in the last list. He gained 30 points to climb to place 7. Judit Polgar has never been higher, having gained six points and occupying place eight in the world rankings.

Here are the top 18, representing all players over 2700.

And here's a graphic display of their wins and losses compared to the previous list:
