Firstly, there were two junior tournaments, one for Boys U-20 and another one for Girls U-20. A total of 24 junior players participated in these first tournaments with the Boys tournament being strongly contested by three International Masters and one Fide Master. The final winner was IM Dimitrios Mastrovasilis from Greece with a score of 8.5/9. In the girls tournament, woman Fide Master Ana Srebrnic from Slovenia dominated although the result was left to the penultimate round when in the important encounter between Srebrnic and Amina Mezioud from Algeria, Srebrnic came out victorious.
