Starting 1 July 2012, FIDE's official rating list is being updated on the 1st of every month, and includes ratings of rapid and blitz chess.
We will introduce ratings for rapid and blitz chess when they become widespread as only a few players have these ratings at this time.
We would like to extend our special thanks to Hans Arild Runde for his ground-breaking idea of calculating and regularly updating the live chess ratings of elite players,
to Dr Christopher Wright for his contribution to the all-important early development of this site
and thanks to Mark Crowther at TWIC for sharing PGN of games that are difficult to get from official websites.
We would like to thank James Satrapa for his help in maintaining and improving this website.
We would also like to thank Annie Kappel for her help in improving text and layout.
If you have your own site or blog, we are happy to offer you use of the Top 10 Players banner. This banner is updated automatically.
That is, every time there is a change to the Top 10 on our web page, your Top 10 banner is updated simultaneously.

You can get the source code of either the 300px or the narrower 200px width for these banners by going to the LIVE GAMES section.
