The ratings list for August have been released by Fide. Magnus Carlsen continues to be No. 1 with a personal best of 2837. In fact he is 2846 in the live ratings! Aronian is the only other player who is still above 2800. New players to the current top list are Gawain Jones, Daniel Fridman, Wesley So, Romain Edouard, and Vadim Milov. The top 100 rating list has no inflation in the past year. The average of the players is 2701 ELO, two points less than July 2012, and no significant change since July-September 2011.

At the same time entering top 50 is “7 points more difficult” now. In July 2011 Riazantsev was 50th with 2688 ELO, while in August 2012 the same position is for Ding Liren with 2695.
