The chess poggChamp rankings are in!
You know who you are.
There are two categories of chess players: those who win the championship, and those who lose it.
They are called grandmasters.
In the world of chess, the grandmaster is the king of chess.
They play more than 50 games per year, and are paid millions of dollars.
For the 2016 grandmaster rankings, we asked the best players to rank their peers.
Here’s how they did it. 1.

It’s a special place to be.”2.
