Magnus Carlsen On The Road to Success

The FIDE’s top 100 list provides us with very interesting information!

World Champion Viswanathan Anand gained 4 ELO points, placing him on top of the list, plus crossing the 2800 mark , which is a remarkable accomplishment.

GM Kramnik, after losing his # 1 position, is still holding a solid # 2 in the world ranking.

17 year old Norwegian GM Magnus Carlsen jumped to position # 5, after gaining 32 ELO points. Magnus is showing all the characteristics of a future World Champion, if he continues on this path!
