Following his outstanding performance in Tata Steel Masters 2017, Wesley So is now the world’s number 3 in the official FIDE Ratings List, with a rating of 2822.
Despite the Live Ratings indicating So as now No. 2 after Fabiano Caruana dropped some ELO points to today’s 2820, Caruana’s sub-optimal performance from Gibraltar are not yet in for the official tally.
Levon Aronian gained some ELO points as well from Tata Steel, to settle for 7th to 8th place, with a rating of 2785.

He became no.2 for a while at least in 2 days. Anyway Wesley is blessed already with championship trophy at TATA Steel 2017. Good start for the year.
Caloy Rosales Alba – Wesley So is still No. 2 in the live ratings. The reason why he’s No. 3 is because officially, Caruana’s FIDE rating is still 2827 considering that his Gibraltar Masters tournament is still on-going although he had already dropped at more than 6.0 ELO points. Officially, per FIDE, So is No. 3 but per live ratings, he is No. 2.

Go Wes go.
Caruana rise up again
No, that’s still his January 2017 rating, because the Gibraltar is not yet finished, thus not counted in the update.
Number 2 yesterday! Caruana and Carlsen not sleeping bec So is coming!
Malapit nang maging #1 c wesley.
He got his current rating in only a little over 6 months. Give him another quarter and see what would happen. Mabuhay Wesley.
Winner is wearing a barong. It says a lot.
