alexmagnus: <I just looked at the live ratings and Kramnik is outside the top 10 for the first time this century.> When I read this post, I wondered - wasn't Kramnik putside of the top-10 during his illness? Apparently the lowest he was on an official list prior to 2014 was a 9th place

alexmagnus: <plang> the talk was abou Hou going to overtake Polgar's <current> rating, not some historical figure. As for a historical figure, that's far yet - Polgar's highest was 2735. But it's also wrong to say top 10 is comparable to top 10. The meaning of top 10 through ...

alexmagnus: In Korchnoi's case age hardly matters anything - he peaked around the age at which other top players are long retired. He played his WC matches at 46 and 49, his rating peaked on several occasions between 47 and 50 (chessmetrics gives his peak at 47 btw). That is - when at his ...

  alexmagnus: Thank you <whteshark>. I hardly followed the OIBM for the reason that they have no live games, nice to see this result. What a win! And what a game!!!
Nov-01-13  Billy Vaughan: Alexmagnus, I think I have a correction for your list of greatest distance to #10. Olimpbase gives Kramnik as having 2790 on January '98 with tenth ranked Svidler/Beliavsky at 2690, a difference of 100, not 110.

  alexmagnus: I used the lists from the now closed schachchronik site which, according to the owner himself, used olympbasr as a source, so this is really strange.
Nov-08-13  Billy Vaughan: I figured out what it was. Olimpbase still lists the inactive Kamsky in the top ten, whereas Schachchronik doesn't.

  alexmagnus: Just noticed Karpov is the oldest living player with a peak rating over 2700... Making kind of a collection of all "oldest living" players and the history of each of these "titles". So far oldest living:

GM: Averbakh (last change of hands: 2010, death of Lilienthal).

World Champion: Spassky (last change of hands: 2010, death of Smyslov)

Peak-2700: Karpov (last change of hands: 2008, death of Fischer).

Peak-2800: Kasparov (last change of hands: 1990, Kasparov becoming first 2800 player ever).

  MarkFinan: I just read your profile and your forum page, and I see you're the statistics guy around here. It's interesting to me but I also think it's just too hard to judge and compare chess players from different eras. I see you make a good go of it though. I think it's hard for people like me to judge who was strongest because I'm not qualified to. I can give my opinions, but I can't be a *good* judge because I don't understand chess like the players themselves! So my opinion is Kasparov is the greatest ever, with the very real possiblity of Carlsen overtaking him before his career is over. I guess there's a good case for Fischer too. But I do disagree strongly that there's someone out there who has never played the game that could beat either of them!

Why did the schachkronik site close? It was a superb resource. It's true that olimpbase provides similar information, but the graphs and tables in SK were excellent.

It's closure followed what seemed to be some extensive hacking attacks.

Do you know anything more?

Could you ask him if the information and graphics from that site are still available? His site was an invaluable research tool.

  alexmagnus: I once had a joking tracing of the WC title if the WC changed by winning one tournament game against the curent titleholder, starting with Steinitz. Undofrtunately, I got stuck in 1919 due to missing dates.
