There were no other norms done but 12 year old Rapport Richard (HUN) whose coach was GM Peter Lukacs was only one point shy of his second IM-norm. First he reached it at Harkany (HUN) last November scoring 6.5 of nine games against a 2367 average of opponents.

Another bright spot was the participation of WGM Corke Anya, Champion of HKG in the IM-A group. She came from the most faraway but not in vain. She collected 16 FIDE-Elo points against strong men's field.
