July FIDE Rating List

New rating list has just been announced. You can download it here. Veselin Topalov is 1st with 2813 (improved 9 points from April), while Vishy Anand dropped to 2779 (-24) mostly because of his poor Olympiad performance. Levon Aronian is stable 3rd with 2761 and my guy Vladimir is 4th with 2743. Top 100 Players July 2006 here.

On Country Top players list Serbia and Montenegro is still placed 17th. Separated rating lists will start on Jan 1st 2007. 45-years old GM Branko Damljanovic is now rated 2625, his highest rating ever, which ranks him 87th on the world. It's been quite awhile since Serbia had a player in top 100. Legendary GM Ljubomir Ljubojevic played 4 games in Dutch League and is now rated 2551. FM Borko Lajthajm had excellent season to bring him 2507 points. I haven't played any games standing on 2210.
