World Chess Federation’s Top 100 Players (April 2008)

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!
