Strongest chess couples: "5000+ Club"
Page 2

If only they were married: GM Kasparov G (2851) GM Polgar J (2735) = 5586

Natalia and I decided to compile a list of the strongest chess couples in the world who could become members of the honorary "5000+ Club".

The requirements for becoming a member are the following:

1)     Two chess players should be officially married (no girlfriend & boyfriend stuff)

2)     The sum of their peak FIDE ratings should be 5000 (!) or more

So, as of this day, we have the following list of of "5000+ Club" members:

GM Ivanchuk (2787) GM Galliamova (2554) = 5341 (X)

GM Shirov (2755) IM Cmilyte (2512) = 5267 (X)

GM Grischuk (2748) IM Zhukova(2490) = 5238

GM Lautier (2687) IM Skripchenko (2498) = 5185 (X)

GM Fressinet (2676) IM Skripchenko (2498) = 5174

GM Socko B (2660) GM Socko M (2505) = 5165

GM Peng Xiaomin (2657) WGM Qin Kanying (2501) = 5158

GM Al-Modiakhi (2588) GM Zhu Chen (2548) = 5136

GM Wu Shaobin (2545) GM Xie Jun (2574) = 5119

GM Korneev (2671) WGM Kononenko (2442) = 5113

GM Movsesian(2751) WGM Krupkova (2362) = 5113 (X)

GM Fridman (2646) IM Zatonskih (2462) = 5108

GM Illescas (2640) IM Alexandrova (2462) = 5102

GM Zhang Zhong (2667) WGM Li Ruofan (2433) = 5100

GM osashvili (2549) IM Polgar Sofia (2540) = 5089

GM Karjakin (2732) WIM Dolzhikova K (2351) = 5083

GM Fountaine (2572) GM Lahno (2509) = 5081

GM Kharlov (2656) WGM Zaiatz (2422) = 5078 (X)

GM Atalik S (2632) WGM Atalik E (2434) = 5066

GM Bellon (2510) GM Cramling (2550) = 5060

GM Drozsovskij (2620) WGM Zdebskaja (2438) = 5058

GM Gulko (2644) WGM Akhsharumova (2400) = 5044

GM Gyiemesi (2628) WGM Medvegy (2407) = 5035

GM Malakhatko (2621) IM Zozulia (2412) = 5033

GM Miladinovic (2630)  WGM Botsari (2380) = 5010 (X)

        GM Lalic B (2600) IM Lalic S (2405) = 5005 (X)

 

Some couples were very-very close to making it to the list: GM Turov (2584) WGM Turova (2415) = 4999 (!); GM Charbonneau (2510) IM Krush (2479) = 4989; GM Hernandez G (2572) WGM Amura (2405) = 4977; GM Makarov (2560) WGM Demina (2405) = 4965; GM Eljanov (2716) - WIM Dvoretska (2212) = 4928, etc., but they still have chances.

We will be keeping the traditions of "5000+ Club" and reviewing the list in accordance with the upcoming changes.

Bogdan and Susan Lalic got divorced many years ago. She's now married to Graem Buckley which drops her below the 5000 barrier! I'm not sure if her and Keith Arkell ever managed to reach 5000 :grin

Thanks, Lawrence, it's been fixed. 
Keith's peak rating was 2545, so together they had 4950 - that's why we didn't have them listed! :grin
