  2. List of female chess players by peak FIDE rating with countries?

  3. List of chess players by their peak FIDE blitz rating

  4. List of female chess players by their peak FIDE blitz rating

There is a Wiki list is for all of the top-rated FIDE chess players. But where is the list of top chess players by peak FIDE rapid rating? Please include countries.


Update: Wow. See answer: Carlsen, Magnus Norway 2919, 1st and only player so far to achieve 2900+ in rapid. Unlike blitz where, as we can expect, Hikaru Nakamura has achieved 2900+

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 rapid ratings of 2700 and over. Since you also ask for countries I've included distinct player/country combinations. So, for instance, Caruana appears for both Italy and the US.

The "Period" is the first FIDE rating list in which the player achieved the rating. If the player didn't play rated rapid 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.

It is interesting how old some of these peak rapid ratings are. It looks like maybe the top players don't play that much rapid, compared to blitz and standard?
