Wiki says: Magnus Carlsen is 'the current World Chess Champion, World Rapid Chess Champion, and World Blitz Chess Champion'. Wesley So is 'current World Fischer Random Chess Champion'.
- What world chess championships are both Magnus Carlsen and Wesley So eligible for (aside from possibly World Championship of Chess Composition, World Chess Solving Championship and World Team Chess Championship aaaand world women's in case fide allows transgender)?
I wasn't able to find a list of world championships in chess except for the wiki one:
One reason I'm asking is that I want to clarify my understanding:
Magnus Carlsen is the world chess champion in every possible standard category. He is the world chess champion in every possible category except chess960. Wesley So is the world chess champion in the only category that Magnus Carlsen can be but isn't. (The previous sentences exclude World Championship of Chess Composition, World Chess Solving Championship and World Team Chess Championship.)
Please correct if I misunderstood something.
- Where can I find an official list of world championships in chess? I mean, the one above is just wikipedia. Idk I just figure FIDE might have some list on its site somewhere.
