The FIDE website has published the official October rating list, in which Fabiano Caruana is only 19 points behind Magnus Carlsen (2844 for the Italian vs 2863 for the world champion). Veselin Topalov has 2800 again as in good old times; he occupies the 3rd rank, while Alexander Grischuk who is the 4th still lacks 3 Elo points to enter the virtual 2800+ club. Levon Aronian went down to the 5th position, Vladimir Kramnik is only 11th. Meanwhile, Anish Giri has set his new personal record: his position in the FIDE rating list had never been as high as #7 before October 2014.

In the women's Top 100, Hou Yifan has almost caught up with Judit Polgar (who had recently announced her retirement from chess). The Chinese GM (2673) needs only 3 more rating points to surpass Polgar's Elo and to interrupt her 25-years hegemony in women's chess.
