Ilya Shikshin won the 2018 Grand Prix defeating Pavol Lisy in the final.

Ilya will be promoted to 3p, so now there are two 3p European players (the other is Alexandr Dinerchtein). Also, at long last, Mateusz Surma has become 2p.

Ilya's progression is very impressive: it took him only 11 days longer to go 2p->3p (716 days) than from 1p to 2p (705 days), even though he needed 25% more points to do so. I expect he will become 4p in 2021. But I believe 4p will be his final rank, because the Asian tournaments are too strong for European players.
