Wesley So reaches 2700 ELO

Filipino GM Wesley So has breached the 2700 rating barrier on the live rating list. He is the first Filipino to reach this ELO level. Wesley is playing in the Reykjavik Open and his rating is 2701.3 after drawing the last round against GM Pavel Eljanov (in just three moves!). Both players are ensured of a tie for first place after this draw.

China's latest chess sensation, IM Wei Yi, clinched his third and final GM norm at Reykjavik. At the age of 13,  he is now the youngest grandmaster in the world

Live rating list is not official.
In the one and only official rating list, gm Wesley So is UNRATED: and that's the only truth.
