Live Chess Ratings - Top 100

Post by ajay » Sat May 07, 2016 7:05 pm

There are as many as six Indians who are rated in top 100 of live chess ratings. Although we know couple of them very well, I thought this is a good time to recognize these bunch of good players and bring them up in our collective conciousness. I'm quite sure this must be a record as I don't think I have seen more than 4 players in the top 100 list. Good to see youngsters like Adhiban and Vidit Santoshi Gujrathi making it to top 100. Although one of the youngster, Negi is already retired. Hopefully Sethuraman will join this list soon as he shouldn't be far behind.

Sethu cracked Top-100 last month before Vidit did, but was pushed out with his disappointing performance in the Asian Team championship where he lost to a couple of 2400 guys...

4 of our top players recently participated in the Hasselbacken Open.....

- Adhiban was joint first and jumped to a high of 2677.4
- Vidit had a decent performance and played one of the top boards in the last couple of rounds to gain 8.1 ELO and is currently 2666.1 to strengthen his spot in the Top-100
- Sethu had a great start, but drew with a couple of 2550+ GMs and lost to the eventual winner Andreikin in the 6th round and gained 6.4 ELO and is currently 2653.4, just outside the Top-100
- Sasi had a good start with 3 wins, then lost to a 2500 GM and finished with 3 draws against 2500+ GMs and lost 2.9 ELO...

After winning the Asian Championship with 7/9, Sethuraman is back in top 100 and that makes 7 Indians in top 100. Hari and Vidit did not perform to their expectations. Here are the current rankings.

India's #3 Adhiban had a good outing at Abu Dhabi Int. Chess Festival Masters Tournament where he finished second. He led the tournament solo or jointly till the last round, but got leapfrogged by Russian top seed Andreikin Dmitry who won his lat match while Adhiban only got a draw.
In 2008 Adhiban was World Under-16 Champion and in July 2014 he won the Biel Chess Festival

Sethuraman once again was ousted but Sasikiran joined the top 100 club.

Has Negi totally stopped playing or he does play once in a while. How is he maintaining his ranking?

Yes, he is not playing chess and must be a junior at Stanford. http://www.stanforddaily.com/2014/09/24 ... andmaster/

Yes I knew that but even after not playing for 2 years he is still in top 100? It seems they don't lose rating points if not playing.

ELO ratings are not based on points. They don't degrade over time. They are strictly based on head to head meetings. So if you abruptly retire, your ELO remains the same until/unless you un-retire & play again. The next adjustment is the next time he plays an official rated match.

What a fascinating interview. Stanford seems to have accepted him on faith, and based on his chess (and the academic potential that predicts!). Negi says he has never done homework before: if his academic results are still good enough, he must be a genius. Otherwise, Stanford gambled in accepting him. Interesting!

We should pay more attention to chess, a game invented by Indians.

In no other sport do we have 7 of the world's top-100, and the immediate past world champion.

Time to record historic event of two Indians in top 10 of Chess ratings. Harikrishna, with back to back two wins in Spanish league gained 7.1 more points that ensured breaking into top 10 for the first time ever :clap: . Anand also got a victory in second round of the Tal Memorial when he beat Mamedyarov. Earlier he drew with Anish Giri in Round 1.

Sethuraman is back in top 100, pushing Sasikiran out and maintaining the count of Indians in top 100 at 7. Adhiban falls continues, and Vidit is still just outside top 50. Harikrishna is back in top 10, still waiting to hit the single digit ranking. Anand and Nakamura are tied at 7th.

76		Negi 				2670.0	23	
80		Ganguly 			2667.9	33	
84		Adhiban 			2666.0	24	
98		Sethuraman 		2657.7	23

Sasikiran had a good tournament at European Club Cup where he won 5 out of 6 games (1 draw) . That certainly helped him to jump back in top 100. However, Sethuraman dropped out once again leaving, once again, 7 Indians in top 100.

 #        Name    		Ratings	Age
 7		Anand				2779.0	46

76		Negi 				2670.0	23	
81		Ganguly 			2667.9	33	
83		Adhiban 			2666.0	24	
90		Sasikiran  		2661.4	35

Sasikiran is older than Ganguly, right?
