This tournament seemed to have followed a rather unusual format. I think this is how it went – but keep in mind that this is just conjecture: the goal of the tournament was to produce IM norms. Therefore, there was a preliminary section first with the best scoring players proceeding to the final. This way, the participants of the final has already had a relatively good run and needed relatively few points to make the norm. In addition, this meant the title holders only had to play four round. Because there was a tie in one of the preliminary groups, a play-off match between Moulin and Klein (2 games at 30′ pppp, then two times two games at 15′ pppp) was necessary. Their 2½ points meant that a norm would be very difficult to get for them and indeed it didn’t happen. Moulin’s last game of the tournament was 165 moves long!
