Ruslan Ponomariov believes that FIDE calculated his rating incorrectly, adding extra points
«FIDE even can't calculate ratings well. On 1-st July I must to be №10, but they add me 4 points and now I am №7. Nakamura must to be №6.» – mentioned Ruslan Ponomariov on Твиттер. According to the official FIDE rating list as of July 1st the Ukrainian плеер was seventh.
We would like to add that in the current rating list, which is published on our website and varies from tournament to tournament, Ponomariov and Nakamura occupy exactly those places that are correct according to Ponomariov: tenth and sixth respectively.
