There is a bigger gap between world number 1 Magnus Carlsen and number 2 Levon Aronian than there is between Aronian and number 16 Anish Giri in the latest Live Ratings.

The gap is widening. Is Carlsen that much stronger than everyone else?
#1 Carlsen 2870.0, #2 Vladimir Kramnik 2796.4 (+73.6)
#2 Kramnik 2796.4, #28 Teimour Radjabov 2723.0 (+73.4)
