Carlsen way ahead

Magnus Carlsen
World No.1 Magnus Carlsen is 30 points ahead of his closest rival Levon Aronian in the January 2012 ratings. After poor recent form, Viswanathan Anand has dropped below the 2800 mark and down to fourth. The next big test for the world elite will be in Wijk aan Zee at the Tata Steel tournament starting on Saturday.

Here is the new ELO list which was published on the 1st of January.

Note the rise of a youthful generation: Teimour Radjabov, Fabiano Caruana, Ian Nepomniachtchi and Wang Hao.
