Well, he did it, the first grandmaster norm at 11 years and 7 months. The last game seems to be a grandmaster draw with one of the weakest in this competition. Well, he is definitely not Korchnoy, but he could be somebody else.:)

Lucky there weren't any bloviators like Shaun "draw king" Press or the Doerbel sponsors to threaten him and his opponent with double loss.
