GM Illya Nyzhnyk

GM title for Illya Nyzhnyk in Groningen

Just three months and two days after his 14th birthday the Ukrainian prodigy held GM Abhijeet Gupta to a draw. It was the penultimate round of the Groningen Chess Festival, but young Illya had enough points to secure his final GM norm, making him the currently youngest grandmaster in the world, and the eleventh youngest in history.
