Just calculated Anton's performance rating using paxman calculator. It gives 2909. Pity he can't make it to St Peterborough.:)

Anton seems to be in phenomenal form coming off the Australasian Masters, hopefully these are signs for another great year of chess for him

Vlad, this could actually lead to a tricky dilemma for you and Anton to deal with: Since he keeps getting better and better and will probably clear 2600 soon (I say it is likely to happen in 2019) - it may become more tempting to focus on chess alone rather than divide time between professional chess and studies :)

... it may become more tempting to focus on chess alone rather than divide time between professional chess and studies :)

Unless Anton decides to pursue his chess professional career in Russia, Europe, or the US (there are certain very attractive scholarship opportunities offered to talented youngsters there), I don't see it happening!
I find it more plausible that Anton will follow his dad's golden rule of combining professional career and chess.
To a certain extend you followed this same rule - a decision that turned out to be correct.
Residing in a chesswise backward country like Australia won't get you far as a chess professional.
