Fabiano Caruana is officially the world's number 3 player. The Italian, who also has an American passport, gained 22 ratings in the July 1st FIDE rating list and surpassed Vladimir Kramnik, who lost 19 points. World Champion Viswanathan Anand lost 11 more points and dropped to 8th place, his lowest ranking in decades.

World's number one Magnus Carlsen has been fairly consistent after reaching the highest rating ever; in this list he lost just two points to get to 2862. Levon Aronian didn't play rated games in this period and remains on second place, with 2813. Alexander Grischuk won just one point, but jumped to fifth place as two of his rivals lost points.

Boris Gelfand, who won the super strong Tal Memorial a day before he turned 45, gained 18 points. The Israeli grandmaster is back in the top 10 for the first time since March 2010. Veselin Topalov lost 17 points but is still the world's #10. Gata Kamsky is 11th with +22 points, while the biggest winner in the top 100 can be found on #13: Leinier Dominguez. The Cuban won the FIDE Grand Prix in Thessaloniki and gained no less than 30 points in one list!

Below you can find the overall list and the women's list, where Humpy Koneru is back on the #2 spot with 2607, 89 points behind Judit Polgar. Hou Yifan is third with exactly 2600. All data courtesy of FIDE.

    He is solely of Italian ancestry—all eight of his great grandparents originate from Italy (wikipedia).

    What funny thing that he's playing for Italy???

    I think its a personal choice and there is nothing wrong with that. But I hope he at least lives there half the year otherwise its a big joke.Millions of Americans can claim 3rd generation Americans, if that is so then Steve Jobs should be Syrian-American because his father was Syrian?!!!

    I was seeing some comment resenting about why GM Magnus Carlsen maintained world number while others fast tracked up and dropped off the top ten list.

    First of all, MC is in good shape, has a universal approach to chess opening, predilection to good end game prowess, and positional style.

    Besides that, he's reported an athlete, and in good shape with oranges being available to him at all times :) just Kidding!

    GM Fabiano Caruana is the sole top 10 chess players who can also reach or break the elo rating peak of all time as MC and Garry Kasparov did.

    Good luck FC, wishing him the best Smile

    WTG Fabiano!!

    Magnus better get a move on, or Caruana is gonna make him look like he's standing still!!

    And to bump Kramnik from the top 3, that's an achievment in itself. First time since Nov 2011.

    @Sir-j

    That's not what I meant by funny.  It's just that over the years most top notch American players are players that had moved here from other countries.  I just find it ironic that an actual American born chess player that has acheived this high a ranking plays for another country.  If he is of 100% Italian heritage then it certainly makes sense for him to play for Italy.  Regardless of what flag he's flying he's definitely made me a fan of his.

    it's called inflation. Nothing more, nothing less.

    Congrats to Boris Gelfand on reaching the top 10 again.  And to the young Italian-American who has climbed to #3.  Funny how the person who is probably the best American born player since Bobby Fischer is playing for Italy.

    why is everyone so obsessed with these EGO points?  averell_dalton 

    They're "so obsessed" with ELO rating pts, not EGO pts. The rating pts indicate very precisely exactly what a player's current performance level is relative to his/her peers. By analogy your question is like asking "Why is everyone so obsessed with their soccer team's standing in the World Cup?"  The first link is a short explanation of ratings, the 2nd one is much longer.

    Something is screwy about this rating system. Carlsen doesn't dominate his peers like Fischer, Karpov, and Kasparov did. So how can have a higher rating??
