In the FIDE advanced search it seems to only allow search by standard rating. Is there a way, for example, to search the list of players with descending blitz rating or rapid rating? My final goal is to find out strong blitz players with somewhat low standard ratings.

Is this possible with the FIDE website or is there another website which can do this?

The FIDE site only allows you to sort by what you see, so no rapid or blitz option. However you can download the raw data from the FIDE download site. Then it is a straightforward programming task to extract the data and load into a relational database database (I use SQL Server). From there you can write your own SQL queries to get the results you want.

My final goal is to find out strong blitz players with somewhat low standard ratings.

You do not say what you mean by "strong blitz players" but, assuming that means over 2000, here is a list of the top 20 players with blitz >= 2000 sorted by (blitz - standard)

You can visit https://2700chess.com/. It lets you sort the rating. But it seems the display is limited.

I took the April 2022 FIDE rating file and created a list sorted on blitz in descending order. I also added blitz_rating - std_rating to see which player has a higher blitz than standard rating. If it is positive, the player's blitz rating is higher than standard. See the BR-SR column, showing only the top 200 blitz players. The "i" under the Flag column is "inactive". SRtng is the standard rating.

Code (Python/Pandas)

import pandas as pd

fn = r'F:\Downloads\players_list\players_list_foa.txt'
df = pd.read_fwf(fn)

dfbr = df[(df['BRtng'] >= 2500)]
dfbr = dfbr.sort_values(by='BRtng', ascending=False)
dfbr = dfbr.reset_index(drop=True)

dfbr = dfbr.drop(['WTit', 'OTit', 'FOA', 'SGm', 'SK', 'RGm', 'Rk', 'BGm', 'BK'], axis=1)
dfbr['BR-SR'] = dfbr['BRtng'] - dfbr['SRtng']
dfbr['Age'] = 2021 - dfbr['B-day']
print(dfbr.head(200).to_string())

    I am using pandas. Read the FIDE rating text file into pandas dataframe, filter out unnecessary columns and add calculated columns BR-SR and Age.

  1. Access https://ratings.fide.com/
  2. Click on Advanced Search
  3. Select the desired rating in the "Select Rating" dropbox (top left)
  4. In "Sort by", check "Rating (FIDE rated only)", and optionally check "Ascending" or "Descending" below that.
  5. Even outside of your specific scenario, you'll probably want to restrict the results in some way, either by restricting the rating range or age range or by selecting a country, etc.
  6. Click on "Search".

This isn't such a new feature, so I'm a bit confused by the previous answers.
