October 2014 ratings: Faby! Faby! Faby!

by Albert Silver
10/2/2014 – The month of September was somewhat breathtaking to follow as a change in the guard took place so swiftly and aggressively that fans and pundits were left scratching their heads. After two super results, Fabiano Caruana added 43 Elo, moved to world no.2 and is within 19 Elo of Magnus Carlsen. No less impressive is Hou Yifan who is now within two Elo of ending a 25-year domination.

FIDE October 2014 – Top 100 Players

When the Sinquefield Cup started early September with its stellar lineup, the question on everyone’s mind was whether he would win it, and would it be a crushing result? The answer was a resounding yes. What’s that you say? You thought we meant Carlsen? Of course we were referring to Comet Caruana streaking through the chess heavens. Joking aside, the Italian’s 7.0/7 start was so astonishing , it had pundits searching every major tournament in the last century for a parallel. The result was a monster 35 Elo gain that brought him within 30 Elo of Magnus Carlsen, while he leapfrogged Levon Aronian.  However, he did not stop there. As if to say this was not a one-off result, but a sign of things to come, he added a further 7.5 Elo during the European Club Cup to end within just 19 Elo of the Norwegian.

 

Fabiano's incredible surge has made him the indisputable world no.2

 

Of note also is Topalov's superb series of results,, that has permitted him to climb back into the 2800 club for the first time since 2010. This is in direct contrast to Levon Aronian, who drops out of the 2800 club for the first time since 2010. On the youth front, Anish Giri broke his personal best once more and with 2768 is now the world no.7, his first foray into the Top 10, though it bears mentioning that after that it is another 20 Elo before moving up another rung.

Top climbers and descenders

SInce much has aready been said of the superb gains of Caruana and Topalov, a curious statistic this month is the double-digit Elo loss by almost all the Chinese players in the Top 100, right after their historic Gold medal win at Tromso, or Bu Xiangzhi's crushing victory at the Politiken Open just before.

FIDE Top Women

It was so.... close. Hou Yifan came within an inch, no, a centimeter, no... well, you get the picture. The Chinese prodigy won a further 10 Elo at the European Club Cup taking her within just two Elo of overtaking Judit Polgar, and ending a domination that has lasted for 25 years. Of special note also is her compatriot Ju Wenjun's superb gain of 20 Elo, taking her to 2582, and overtaking Humpy Koneru for third.

FIDE Top Girls

With 55 Elo gained, 14-year-old Stavroula Tsolakidou from Greece brings
her total ratings increase to over 300 Elo in about a year as she was rated
1986 FIDE in August 2013, and now tops 2305 FIDE. The rise is no fluke
as she played in the WYCC Under-16 event and took silver. Impressive.

Top 100 Blitz

While Alexander Morozevich took a giant 61 Elo leap to 2811 and world number seven, Alexander Grischuk jumped in the opposite direction and lost 53 Elo.

18-year-old IM Olexandr Bortnyck continues to be the ultimate specialist,
and remains at 2679 FIDE Blitz, with a standard rating of 2531. That said,
after his gold medal at the WYCC in the Boys Under-18, with a 2700
performance, one imagines this disparity will not last.

MJFitch, Just the opposite, you gain little when beating lower-rated player; you lost a lot when losing. That is why she always played in men tournaments.

Why wasn't Bilbao results included in Oct 2014 ratings calculation?

While I consider GM Hou Yifan is great talent, she has to play many more top level men tournaments before she can even claim to be in the same class as GM Judit Polgar? Had GM Judit Polgar played women's tournament's exclusively, I'm sure her rating would be much, much higher...That's Just my opinion.

What is more important and there is no mention of it: The future world champion has just entered, very quietly, the top 100 for the first time. Look who is at position 81 . . .

81) Artemiev, Vladislav

Congratulations to the young rising star!
