2015 Top 100 FIDE Classic Rapid and Blitz Chess Rating

By Carolina Blanco

Officially the world chess federation publishes the top 100 by categories at the beginning of every new year. I want to highlight the consistency in the top 10 players in the main classic ranking as well as in the rapid and blitz ranking. Magnus Carlsen (NOR) is the indisputable number one in the world in the average of the 3 rankings combined, followed very closely by Fabiano Caruana (ITA), Alexander Grischuk (RUS), and Hikaru Nakamura(USA) and there are signs of each of them continuing to escalate.

Top Women in the World

Judit Polgar (Hungary) remains queen in all 3 versions of ranking followed amazingly close by the young Chinese GM Hou Yifan who has won a ton of points in the last two years, followed by Indian GM Koneru Humpy in the 3rd position.
