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.

Caruana played for Italy from 2005 to 2015. On May 12, 2015, the USCF announced that he would be changing federations, to play for the USA. Unfortunately at the time of making this video i wasn’t able to change flags during animation 😔

  10. I think I have all the rights compare Carlsen with Kasporav, they both are legends

  11. Chess is the game of brain and there is no Pakistani … U know what I'm talking about…😁

  12. What happened to Garry Kasparov? He was top but why removed

  13. So its clear if you work really hard you can reach 2nd position max

  14. In conclusion, Vishwanathan Anand is a vampire.

  15. Alireza was not even top 50 . And look at him now :O

  16. Ummmm…… You forgot about Wesley who is really better than Carslen

  17. why chess players can retire and pull off the spot where they how why… pls soem on explain to me

  18. well when some one retires..

  19. I would like more a longer period of years and faster, but anyways great work!

  20. Magnus carlsen great ever . Great of all time . He really fast play..absolutely genius fast

  21. Interesting fact: Wesley So left his home country(Philippines) to play for USA

  22. The french player Maxime at the second place with over 2800 elo, that's great !

  23. Vishy anand was there for 20 years…Such consistency 👏👌

  24. This video tells me a few things: First, we may have seen the 3 best chess players ever in Kasparov, Vishy, and Magnus. Second, I am amazed at how unbelievable Vishy's longevity has been. He has been an amazing chess player for a ridiculous amount of years. Three, it feels like Carlsen is going to be on top forever!!!

  25. As I know Vishy was world champion from 2006 to 2013(wiki) before Magnus defeated him.. but the video shows Magnus on top position for those years .. how?
