  18. Content rating: Good

  19. Magnus be like -: I don't want to be listed in countries list
    I ll make my own country of chess.

  20. I've checked the countries of former Yugoslavia on the FIDE list. Combined they would have 126 GMs, 268 IMs, 1249 titled, and an average rating of about 2600, placing them collectively at #17. However, hadn't there been a forceful dissolution of the country in the 90s, probably more people would've devoted themselves to the game, thus increasing the top-10 average rating. In my opinion it could've been higher by at least 10-20, so among the top 15, maybe even top 10.

  21. I was hoping my country would be atleast in the top 10, I was also surprised norway wasnt there

  22. Most of USA top 10 players are imported from another federation..

  23. U.S. has the most imported GMs

    Once dollar collapses GMs will move to other countries

    India and China surprised the number of GMs is so low compared to their population.

  24. "Im just flexing that I can pronounce their names correctly"

  25. tbh none of us ever had heard he chinese super gms apart from ding

  29. The actual list would be
    1. Russia
    2. India
    3. U.S.
    4. China

  30. Top Chess Nations: We have an average rating of 27xx
    One Norwegian boy: You're decent

  31. US keeps buying players… (Caruana, So, Dominguez…) Next one of the list, Aronian, will make sure that Armenia will drop on this list.
