    Live Ratings during Tata Steel 2012

    I though I'd have a look at how the players in Group A are faring so far, after 4 rounds.

    Carlsen +2=2-0 has +6.2 pts (win over Aronian was quite valuable +4.6)
    Aronian +3=0-1 has +8.3 pts
    Radjabov +1=3-0 has +2.4 pts
    Topoalov +0=4-0 has -2.4 pts
    Karjakin +2=0-2 has -1.6 pts (loss to Caruana was expensive -5.5)
    Nakamura +0=3-1 has -5.2 pts
    Ivanchuk +0=4-0 has -0.6 pts (his draw against Carlsen was balanced by his draw against Van Wely)
    Caruana +1=3-0 has +7.7 pts
    Gashimov +0=3-1 has -5.3 pts
    Gelfand +0=3-1 has -4.8 pts (loss to Giri was expensive -5.3)
    Giri +1=2-1 has +2.5 pts
    Kamsky +0=3-1 has -3.7 pts
    Navara +0=2-2 has -3.2 pts
    Van Wely +0=4-0 has +3.7 (my own calc as he's not on the live list >2700)

    When everything is said and done, and nothings left to do, I'd like to be the final one to say "What else is new?"

    Carlsen has just set a new high after beating Wang Hao in round seven of Biel. He is at 2842.8, 0.2 points above his previous highest. Carlsen has now been live #1 for over a year though Aronian came close to passing him at times.

    Chessbase is now saying that Carlsen's 2857.4 is the highest live rating ever. They do not give a figure for Kasparov's peak live rating.

    There is a calculation in a table in the comments to this article (in Norwegian) that gives either 2856.7 or 2855.9 depending on calculation method. It seems that 2856.7 has been widely adopted. (They picked the same point as I did - after his 2000 win against Anand in Linares).

    Kramnik has just moved into second place, 0.5 ahead of Aronian and a mere 55.7 behind Carlsen.

    I'm continually having to edit the first post as Carlsen keeps breaking his own live rating record. That said wins over the bunnies at Tata Steel are only worth about 2 points apiece for him now!

    It's amazing to think Carlsen is outrating the likes of Anand, Topalov, Kramnik etc by 100 points.

    Caruana has now gone to 2843.5 (at one stage 2843.8), less than 20 points behind Carlsen and higher than anyone has been bar Carlsen and Kasparov. He scored 5/6 in the European Club Cup.

    Anand is also on the rise.

    Hou Yifan overtook Polgar (who has retired) as the highest live-rated female player on 28 Jan 2015.

    If there are no females amongst these players than chess is certainly a male-dominated game - must put down to family commitments in most cases
    Zionism is racism as defined by the UN, Israel by every dirty means available steals land and water, kill Palestinian freedom fighters and civilians, and operates an apartheid system to drive more Palestinians off their land
