CHESSANYTIME

The new Elo ratings are out!

No change amongst the top three, but Kramnik's poor form has seen him slip behind Aronian into fifth place. Eljanov makes further progress and moves up to sixth by one rating point.
The youngest player in the 2700-club is now Fabiano Caruana who plays for Italy but was born in Miami.

There are 37 players rated 2700 or more. Two are new: Laurent Fressinet and Fabiano Caruana, who both enter the list for the first time, whereas Alexander Onischuk and Peter Heine Nielsen have slipped out of this 'elite' category.

The biggest riser was Michael Adams after a remarkable run in the British Championship.

As you can see in the list below (in bold in the 1/9/10 column), only nine of these players have gained rating points in the previous couple of months.

In the right-hand column, those players who have their career best rating at the present time have had their peak rating highlighted. Apart from newcomers Fressinet and Caruana, both Ukrainians Eljanov and Ponomariov have achieved their highest ever rating.
