Ivanchuk: 15
Gelfand: 13
Aronian: 12
Caruana: 8
Karjakin: 5

Andreikin: 1

<Retired players for comparison>

Karpov: 42

My definition of supertournament is quite broad: any closed international event with at least two players who have been in the top 10 in the last year constitutes a supertournament. Neither matches nor rapid/blitz events count as supertournaments, regardless of who is playing.

If there is a tie for first, it will be counted for all players involved unless the tournament used tiebreaks, in which case only the player they declared winner gets to count it. Please see posts below for details on the events considered but not counted for this list.

Also, for what it's worth, in case of a tie, the first player to reach X supertournament wins will remain listed higher.

Kinghunt: If I'm understanding this right, Anand walks away from the event with literally $0 in prize money? http://www.gibraltarchesscongress.c...

Kinghunt: The draw may have been the pragmatic choice given the strength gap, but white had excellent chances to push for a win instead. For white's 20th move, Komodo 9.3 gives 20. h5 Bc6 21. Qe3 with a score of +0.76 (d=38).

Kinghunt: < BOSTER: < Kinghunt>. Why do you count the winning supertour? Maybe is better to count the winning world champ matches. For ex. Kasparov-6. Carlsen-2.> I count tournaments because it is easy for anyone to look up world championship wins. It is much harder to find

Kinghunt: I have just updated my list of supertournament wins by top players. You may view it on my forum, here: User: kinghunt In summary, it seems to have been a "quiet" year for the list. Players added victories, but nobody passed anyone, and the rankings remain unchanged. Carlsen is ...

Kinghunt: <Events added:> Norway chess 2015, won by Veselin Topalov Sinquefield 2015 - won by Levon Aronian London 2015 - won by Magnus Carlsen (on tiebreak over Giri, MVL) Tata 2016 - won by Magnus Carlsen Dortmund 2015 - won by Fabiano Caruana Bilbao 2015 - won by Wesley So on ...
   Dec-28-15 Qatar Masters (2015) (replies)
Kinghunt: Thanks < siamesedream>. I had thought the tiebreak would be your standard S-B, but it seems that if Carlsen draws and Yu Yangyi wins, there will be a blitz playoff to determine the winner.
   Dec-10-15 London Chess Classic (2015) (replies)
Kinghunt: There are so many draws because Carlsen is drawing all of his games. In a typical tournament, Carlsen is involved in about half the decisive games.
   Dec-04-15 Hydra vs Adams, 2005
Kinghunt: Quite impressive not only that Hydra won in such a fashion, but that it also did it in an opening system that Adams is a specialist in. The position through move 15 had been seen dozens of times, and after only 12 further moves, Adams has to throw in the towel.
   Dec-04-15 Vachier-Lagrave vs Carlsen, 2015 (replies)
Kinghunt: I suspect the outcome of this game depends strongly on which Carlsen shows up in London.
   Dec-03-15 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
Kinghunt: <alexmagnus> He absolutely could gain 28 points given that rating changes would be calculated from his current rating of 2834. By rating, he is only expected to score ~+1 against this field. If he scores +4 here, that's 15 Elo back already. And he would have the same lowered ...
