Compared to chess players:
1. Kasparov, Gary……………… g RUS 2851 2851
2. Anand, Viswanathan………….. g IND 2771 2769
3. Kramnik, Vladimir…………… g RUS 2760 2758
4. Shirov, Alexei……………… g ESP 2734 2751
5. Morozevich, Alexander……….. g RUS 2758 2748
6. Leko, Peter………………… g HUN 2701 2725
7. Adams, Michael……………… g ENG 2708 2715
8. Ivanchuk, Vassily…………… g UKR 2702 2709
9. Bareev, Evgeny……………… g RUS 2698 2709
10. Topalov, Veselin……………. g BUL 2690 2702
Great idea, really, but what kind of list is the one above? They are not present numbers (Magnus Carlsen tops with 2843) and they are not historical highs either, except for Kasparov. Anand and Kramnik has both been above 2800. Ivanchuk has been over 2780, at least.

This is the present live chess list:

and the last officially publicized one:
