ChessBase's English language website has a review of the new rating list, and one of the most noteworthy items is that there is an untitled 13-year-old American named John M. Burke whose FIDE rating is a staggering 2601. He is now the youngest player ever to reach that number, younger than Magnus Carlsen, younger than Wei Yi, younger than everyone. For the moment he is untitled, but that obviously won't be the case for very long, unless it's discovered that he has swallowed a set of Intel chips or something like that. During the Sinquefield Cup Garry Kasparov mentioned some of America's top juniors, for whom he took at least a little credit: GMs Kayden Troff, Jeffrey Xiong, Sam Sevian and the almost-GM Akshat Chandra. But where did Burke come from? Just two-three months ago he was "only" 2258, so part of this is due to a generous k-factor. Even so, these gains are enormous. It will be interesting to see if he starts playing in international events and having success there.
