Not many surprises this year: Chuchelov and Gorshkova scored expected and clear victories, although I believe the former still had the Russian nationality. There might also be mistakes in the other nationalities., especially in the open section. If I am not mistaken, Van der Stricht scored an IM norm. [1] has all the games from the major sections and a selection from the open tournament. The crosstables were reconstructed from [2].

Wanted

  • Why did Robert retire?
  • Quite a few games from the open section.
