World's Top 10 Chess Player - Wesley So on 3rd Spot!

Meet the World's Top 10 Chess Player as of January 17, 2017.


Wesley So of USA is up by one and currently as top 3 world's chess player behind Magnus Carlsen of Norway and Fabiano Caruana of USA, respectively. His position is caused by his 2 wins and 2 draws after round 4 of the current TATA Steel Masters Tournament. So far, that was a great momentum for the Filipino chess player. Congratulations Wesley for raising the bar up to 2800+ Elo Rating!


Staying number one for a very long time is no other than Magnus Carlsen who is the long time defending world chess champion. It was follwed by Fabiano Caruana and from 3rd to 10th places were - So, Kramnik, Vachier-Lagrave, Karjakin, Anand, Nakamura, Aronian, and Giri.

We are hoping that either Wesley So or Fabiano Caruana will get a title shot this year or for the incoming years.

What can you say about the rising of Wesley So?
