Armenia’s Levon Aronian world’s 2nd strongest in URS rankings

levon aronianLevon Aronian of Armenia and Hikaru Nakamura (U.S.) share the second spot in the list of world’s strongest chess players compiled by the Universal Rating System, Panarmenian reports.

The URS was developed as a result of a collaborative research project funded by the Grand Chess Tour, the Kasparov Chess Foundation and the Chess Club and Scholastic Center of Saint Louis.

There are now four players with a URS rating in excess of 2800 and these players are GM Magnus Carlsen (2867), GM Hikaru Nakamura (2803), Aronian (2803) and GM Maxime Vachier-Lagrave (2802).

The URS calculates a single overall rating for every chess player which is optimized to represent their strength at classical chess based upon their game results across all time controls.
