At this point in his career it's a step back and I question whether or not he would really want to be there.
He just turned 19 not too long ago, he's not so far removed from junior that he is far above a tournament like this. Hell, he was born only 6 months before Yakupov, he's still a kid.
As i said before, it's more about the experience than anything else.
