New FIDE Chess Ratings Published October 2012

The FIDE Chess ratings for October 2012 have just come out. After last year’s not so good results that saw me go from 2522 down to 2439, this year has been much better, and I’m now back to 2490 Elo, with my Rapid rating at a very respectable 2572. You can see my rating progress in the image below. This year’s events so far have been: World Rapid and Blitz Championships in Batumi (Silver and 4th place), European Championship in Gaziantep (11th in Classical and Silver in Rapid),  Russian Team Championship in Sochi (2nd on 1st board), Kazan Grand Prix (5th), Russia vs. China match in Saint Petersburg (top women result), Swiss Individual Mixed Championship (Bronze), Blitz Match vs GM Wang Hao in Biel (1.5-0.5), Istanbul Chess Olympiads (Gold Team Medal and Individual Bronze Medal). This year I still have in October the European Club Cup in Israel, then in November the World Championship in Russia, and finally the Sport Accord Mind Sports Games in December in China. A lot of chess events this year! :-)

    Please explain how it is that you are so much better at rapid chess? What makes that difference?

  2. Alberto says:

    Alexandra is regaining the world chess champion title part of your goals? Or are you more focused on promoting chess?

    Thank you

    Of course I’m still actively in competitive chess, so my main goals are to obtain good results and regain the world champion title I had in 2008-2010 :-)

  4. Alberto says:

    I’d love to see you again winning the title! Good luck!

    Dear Alexandra,

    Fantastic results. But wonders what happened to you in Oct 2000. I guess every one has an off time. As I said in my e-mail, I’m looking forward to the results of your next kids tournament.
