It was erroneously noted that the EU Championships were still not included in the April 2009 rating calculations, which is in fact otherwise, so thanks for some of the readers for pointing this out.

What remains unsettled  is whether Hou Yifan’s +11 performance at the Women’s Grand Prix gets included in the calculations for April. If so, she could edge out Sjugirov and/or Nguyen Ngoc Truong Son for the last spot (20th) among the top juniors.
