Vidit at a career high 2721.2 ELO after IOM tournament.

Third tournament in a row where he has played at a 2750+ level; he is very clearly one of our 2 best players over the last year along with Vishy.

Over the last 12 months, definitely.

Will he ever get to Hari's best level (ELO of 2770)? He needs to improve his endgame a lot; he should have beaten Ding Liren at the World Cup if he could finish endgames against other top players.
