FIDE Ratings Update — September 2016

It’s the beginning of the month, and thus a new ratings update. A lot of rearrangements happen in the Top 20, but the composition is basically still the same.

Fabiano Caruana gained 1 ELO rating point to catch up with Vladimir Kramnik at 2808. Wesley So gained 11 ELO rating points (2782) from his stellar performance in Sinquefield Cup, but that was not enough to catch up with Hikaru Nakamura at number 6 (2789). Anish Giri shaved off some 14 points, from 2769 to 2755, and slid down from number 9 to number 12 in September.

Below is the Top 20 table, but you may check out the full Top 100 here.
