I've come across a list of the highest FIDE ratings ever achieved by all 2700+ players in the 2700chess.com:

enter image description here

This shows all the players above 2700 in classical ordered by their FIDE peak rating. It also shows when and where the respective peak rating was acquired. (This can also be found on wiki.)

I tried to find a similar list for the FIDE blitz ratings but to no success.

Is there a place that has a list of the highest official FIDE blitz ratings by player ? If not, then may you please provide a list similar to here? (Please include their countries.)

It can be either for the top 100, or all players above 2700. Any of those lists would be good.

Curiously when i hover in the current live top 100 blitz ratings in 2700chess.com i can see the player's peak:

enter image description here

But it doesn't seem have a list with the best blitz's only.

    Sure i will. I did upvote your question because it came up in my search results and actually had tried to find that exact list in the same 2700chess.com even though they dont have the women list. I also am curious about the same list in the rapid time control, but im taking one step at a time.

  • You can use the advanced search at ratings.fide.com to get players listed by blitz (or other) rating , but I don't see how to get a similar list using peak ratings.

Is there a place that has a list of the highest official FIDE blitz ratings by player ?

Not as far as I know.

If not, then may you please provide a list similar to here? (Please include their countries.)

Here are the results from the relevant queries on my database constructed from the downloads available from the FIDE rating download website for players with blitz ratings of 2700 and over. Since you also ask for countries I've included distinct player/country combinations. So, So appears twice, once for the Philippines and once for the US. Similarly Caruana for both Italy and the US and winner in the appearances category, Firouza appears 3 times for Iran, FIDE and France.

The "Period" is the first FIDE rating list in which the player achieved the rating. If the player didn't play rated blitz for a year after that then they obviously retain the rating for the next year so the "Period" is the year and month in which FIDE first recorded that rating for them.

    I was thinking: Who the heck is Iuri Shkuro and how did he get such a high blitz rating if I've never even heard of him? Turns out it's probably not legit based on his chessgames link and fide.com/news/344 Aug 2 at 18:48

  • @Isac apparently you can be 2700+ in blitz but not have a wiki page unlike the 2700+ in standard. interesting.
