FIDE Ratings Update – October 2016

A few big tournaments are still ongoing, namely: Isle of Man and Tal Memorial, thus their results are not yet counted for the October update of the FIDE Ratings List.

Nevertheless, a few changes happened since last month. Vladimir Kramnik retakes the 2nd place from Maxime Vachier-Lagrave, and Wesley So overtakes Hikaru Nakamura at the 6th place in the October ratings update.

Anish Giri may have earned 1 rating point, but Pentala Harikrishna and Ding Liren gained 10 points and 11 points, respectively, to overtake him in the ranking. Thus, Giri slid down from 12th to 14th place.
