While updating my "old guard" list, I noticed that there were no changes at all since the previous month, although the FIDE site claims these are for October. I'm wondering if there is some snafu with FIDE's new site.

Meanwhile, I'll publish my superstition of the month (which is a lot easier than some of these regional lists).

  beatgiant: Superstition of the month: Rhyming Rivals

First, a tip of the chess bishop's mitre to User: LameJokes, who posted a joke that inspired this idea.

For each of the top 10 players, I look for the highest ranked player whose name rhymes with that player's. These players constitute the "top 10 players in poetry."

Definitions:
If the name is one syllable (Ding, So) then a rhyme means a name ending phonetically with the same final vowel+consonant combination (-ing, -o)

Otherwise, a rhyme means a name having the same final syllable phonetically.

1. Carlsen 2876 - Nielsen 2617

2. Caruana 2812 - Harikrishna 2748

3. Ding 2811 - Mecking 2553

4. Giri 2780 - Cori 2671

5. Nepomniachtchi 2776 - Qi 2435* (*Depending on how it's pronounced, Manolache 2548 might be a better answer)

6. Vachier-Lagrave 2774 - Vaibhav 2597

7-8. Mamedyarov 2767 - Shirov 2664

7-8. So 2767 - Jakovenko 2681

9. Anand 2765 - Shankland 2705

10-11. Dominguez Perez 2763 - Quesada Perez, Yu. 2615

10-11. Yu 2763 - Bu 2721** (**the original rhyming pair suggested by User: LameJokes)

  alexmagnus: <While updating my "old guard" list, I noticed that there were no changes at all since the previous month, although the FIDE site claims these are for October.>

There were very little changes as most players prepared for the World Cup (which itself will be rated for November).

But the list did change. I see it by the number 100 player. The number 100 in September were some two players sharing 100-101 with 2653. On the October list there are numbers 97-100 having 2654.

Oct-01-19
Premium Chessgames Member
  beatgiant: <alexmagnus>
Thanks. In that case, I'll share something new I've been tinkering with: a "wunderkinds" list.

By looking at the top ratings at young age levels, I came up with a very simple-minded definition of a "wunderkind": 2200 by age 8, 2250 by age 9, 2300 by age 10, etc. raising the cutoff 50 rating points per year.

I then defined a "wunderkind index" to measure by how much a wunderkind exceeds the above age cutoffs:

(rating - 2200)/50*(Age - 7)
Thus for example, if a player is 2230 at age 8, the wunderkind index is 30/50 = 0.6.

I generated a list based on this, which I will post below. But, I don't promise to do this every month, because it took me a few advanced queries (like birth year >= X and rating >= Y) and I couldn't think of an easier way to create this list.

Oct-01-19
Premium Chessgames Member
  beatgiant: Wunderkinds (age based on 2019 minus year of birth, criteria as in previous post)

1. Firouzja: age 16, rating 2702, index 102/50 = 2.04

2. Mishra: age 10, rating 2387, index 87/50 = 1.74

3. Gukesh: age 13, rating 2520, index 70/50 = 1.4

4. Praggnanandhaa: age 14, rating 2567, index 67/50 = 1.34

5. Nihal: age 15, rating 2610, index 60/50 = 1.2

6. Abdusattorov: age 15, rating 2608, index 58/50 = 1.16

7. Bai: age 12, rating 2430, index 30/50 = 0.6

8. Bharath: age 12, rating 2417, index 17/50 = 0.34

9. Maurizzi: age 12, rating 2415, index 15/50 = 0.3

I found only these 9 who met my cutoffs.

Obviously the process for generating this list is much more error-prone than my usual lists, so I look forward to all the corrections.

Oct-01-19
Premium Chessgames Member
  beatgiant: I probably expressed the wunderkind index formula wrong, but the idea is basically index = (rating minus cutoff for age level)/50 and I hope that's clear from the examples.

Of course, we've all probably heard of several of those kids before. The biggest surprise for me was Adelard Bai, who at age 12 is already the #2 player in his federation (Chinese Taipei) and playing on its Olympiad team, although I never heard of him before and there's no kibitzing on his player page.

Chess fans in Taiwan, wake up!

  alexmagnus: <. The biggest surprise for me was Adelard Bai, who at age 12 is already the #2 player in his federation (Chinese Taipei) and playing on its Olympiad team, although I never heard of him>

He was not even close to meeting your cutoff before the very recent rating list. In September he was still rated 2204, and in August even 2033 (though it was not his peak, his pre-August peak was 2113).

Oct-02-19
Premium Chessgames Member
  alexmagnus: How he gained that much? Well, first, being below 2300 and aged below 18 gives you a K-factor of 40.

Second... Well, as I said, in August he was rated 2033, then this happened:

September: 2 events, 171 points gained:

3/8 (+1 -2 =5) against a 2230 average (TPR of 2141 with my formula)

5.5/9 (+4 -2 =3) against a 2232 average (TPR 2311)

October: 2 events, 226 points gained

4.5/8 (+2 -1 =5) against 2225 average (TPR 2269)

5/9 (+1 -0 =8, that's a rare score at this age and level!) against 2281 average (TPR 2320)

So, due to the high K factor he is somewhat overrated (but if he keeps progressing like this, his rating becomes justified very soon. Also, note that his K factor will now fall to 10 due to exceeding 2400).

Thanks. Yes, ratings of these young players can change rapidly, so I should probably revisit this list after some time.

But who is this Abhimanyu Mishra? Not only haven't I heard of him, but I don't find a player page or any games by him on chessgames.com.

And yes, maybe he's overrated at 2387, but who cares? He's 10 years old! His rating has increased steadily and rapidly from around 1700 in July 2017.

I looked him up in the US Chess Federation and learned that is US rating is 2379 and he lives in New Jersey.

  beatgiant: I notice that my last month's "seasonal" theme didn't get any reaction.

So, I set aside my plans to do "Rudolf the Red-Nosed Spielmann" ("You know Danchevsky and Praggnanandhaa and Donner played blitz chess, but do you recall the most famous Reinderman of all...").

I also considered posting "the Golden Dozen" (surname begins with 'Gold') to highlight players like GM Goldin, but I feared I might leave out someone important and provoke a lot of snarky replies.

So with the end of 2019 coming, I decided to go with "year of birth ends in 9". Champions Petrosian and Anand are notable examples of this. And, without further ado, here are... the top nine Niners!

1. Anand 2757 (b. 1969)
2. Wang 2756 (b. 1989)
3. Wei 2725 (b. 1999)
4-5. Ivanchuk 2690 (b. 1969)
4-5. Li 2690 (b. 1989)
6. Dreev 2677 (b. 1969)
7. Leko 2670 (b. 1979)
8. Melkumyan 2668 (b. 1989)
9. Kasimdzhanov 2664 (b. 1979)

OK I will post something seasonal if time permits.

A minor correction to my "Old Guard" list - Gelfand and Shirov are tied for 9-10.
