    Now Anand and Carlsen are on level pegging at 2808.3 with Aronian on 2802.2

    And the way Kramnik has been playing recently he should also (re)join the 2800 club quite soon

    There is still not much place in the 2800+ territory, they can only get there by knocking someone else off.

    Nanjing didn't make it in to the official November FIDE list so Anand is the new official #1 even though he is no longer the unofficial live #1 and has only been the live #1 for 11 days (one of those tied) in the past six months.

    With Anand, Carlsen and Aronian very close at the top the order has been changing a lot with the first two playing in London.

    Over four consecutive days the order was as follows:

    * Carlsen, Anand, Aronian
    * Anand, Aronian, Carlsen
    * Carlsen, Aronian, Anand
    * Anand, Aronian, Carlsen

    According to my calculations, Carlsen will overtake Anand on the live ratings once Round 6 of the London Chess Classic is processed.

    Carlsen's current rating (including R6) is 2810.3, whereas Anand's (inc. R6) is 2810.1.

    Karjakin is also moving up the live ratings with a strong performance in the Russian Championships.

    Does anyone know what has happened to the (supposedly) 'live' rating on htpp://chess.liverating.org/ ?

    Hans Arild Runde hasn't up-dated since Feb 23.

    According to ChessVibes, Hans Arild-Runde has been extremely busy in the last few months and hasn't been able to update his live ratings.

    The site is now being updated again. Anand has remained #1 throughout the break.

    Thanks Kevin,

    I'm impressed to see that Nakamura is still rising through the ranks.

    I'm assuming Carlsen went to live #1 after beating Nakamura last night - site not yet updated.
