It’s Saturday Open Forum!

Kramnik is playing in his first tournament in a while in Dortmund. However, the lowest seed is stealing the show. German Jan Gustafsson is leading the tournament with 2 rounds to go over big names such as Kramnik, Leko, Mamedyarov, and Ivanchuk, etc.

The July 2008 FIDE rating list is finally out with Carlsen at #6 since FIDE kept its word by not rating Foros for this list.

1 Anand, Viswanathan g IND 2798

2 Morozevich, Alexander g RUS 2788

3 Kramnik, Vladimir g RUS 2788

4 Ivanchuk, Vassily g UKR 2781

5 Topalov, Veselin g BUL 2777

6 Carlsen, Magnus g NOR 2775
