Wesley Enters Top 100

The Philippines' GM Wesley So has achieved yet another milestone with the release of FIDE's April rating list. Fifteen year old Wesley moves ever closer to that coveted super-GM status thanks to his new rating of 2641. That places him in 89th spot among the Top 100 players in the world!

To top off that wonderful news, Wesley has also just retained this year's edition of "Battle of the GMs".
