Default Highest ELO performance

Salut,

Kasparow owned the highest ELO score by 2851 between July 1999 und January
2000. Now Topalow plays a great tournament and reaches at the moment an ELO
performance over 3100, but what was the highest ELO performance (!) ever
reached? Does anybody know?

Regards, Frank

Possibly Karpov's 1994 Linares tournament

Jeff Lynne has much less of a reputation for that sort of thing, than,
say, Keith Richards.

Fischer is 1971 beat Taimanov (2600) 6-0, Larsen (2660) 6-0 and won the
first game v. Petrosian (2640).

Those numbers are from the June 30 1971 FIDE list. The Taimanov match
finished in early June so his rating may have been more than 2600 when
he played Fischer.

It works out to about 3050, pre-inflation numbers. How much to add to
adjust to present times.

I seem to recall reading that Fischer's rating was so high by the time he
was finished the candidates matches that his rating actually dropped a
little as a result of the Spassky match. can anyone confirm this?

I heard that also but didn't that happen in the Petrosian match?

I take it that that is Morosevich in 1st and 2nd places.

Yes, upon further research, chessmetrics.com says that Fischer's
chessmetrics rating went down after the Petrosian match, I'm not sure if the
same holds true for his ELO rating.
