Top 20 Best Chess Players Ranking History (2000-2019)

In this Video we rank the best chess players in the world according to their FIDE chess ratings from 2000-2019. This list includes famous chess players like Magnus Carlsen, Garry Kasparov or Fabiano Caruana.
The Fédération Internationale des Échecs (FIDE) governs international chess competition. Each month, FIDE publishes the lists “Top 100 Players”, “Top 100 Women”, “Top 100 Juniors” and “Top 100 Girls”, as well as rankings of countries according to the average rating of their top 10 players and top 10 female players. The Elo rating system is used.
We collect data from sources that are credible, after that we arrange it and visualize it with our own software that we coded in D3 JS (JavaScript). Also we use Adobe Premier Pro for editing our videos. We always triple check our information and take a look deeper so we can add more interesting information and depth to the topic we are researching.
