The men's and women's updated rating lists (as of 1 July) appeared on the FIDE site today. There were no sensational changes in the classical ratings and, despite Emil Sutovsky's assurances, Hou Yifan is still rated second among women. However, the ACP Head's information was based on the unofficial live ratings, which are published on the forum of the Chesspro site; according to that information, the participant of the ACP Golden Classic Anna Muzychuk has overtaken the Chinese.

The innovation that catches the eye is the appearance of separate fields for rapid and blitz ratings in each player's profile. At the moment, not everyone has new types of ratings. For example, those fields remain empty for Carlsen, Aronian, Kramnik and many other men. But women, who played at the European and World Rapid and Blitz championships (in Gaziantep and Batumi), already received the new ratings, according to their results in those tournaments.
