Shikshin's magic invasion

Do you know why Ilya Shikshin (roln111) is very good at handicap games?
He never plays passively, if he is behind! It's very-very difficult to win a favorable position against Ilya, if you have some weak points on the board (weak groups, big unstable moyos ...).
Here is the recent example.
Insei League, B group:
Black played well in fuseki and his lead after Black 110 was obvious.

Can you imagine what happened later? Ilya invaded the top moyo at W 111 and ... KILLED EVERYTHING INSIDE!

Answer 1: He was most likely a member of group B, which has 2 handicaps when playing with teachers.
Answer 2: The number of handicaps with teachers is generally lower because they play simultaneous games.

PS Looked at it again and it is still a magic :)

Why is Ilya giving only 6 stones to a player 6 stones weaker?

I understand you have to promote your own "league", which earns you money, but how about updating news from the other Go servers... at least more than once a month?!
