GM Gonda Laszlo (HUN) former silver and bronze medallist at World Youth events convincingly won the GM group showing up deep strategic play. The average rating was 2474 that meant a 7 point GM requirement which proved to be far too much for the relatively inexperienced young candidates.

The rating section delivered an outstanding success for Farkas Richard (15, HUN). He enjoys competing only but working on seriously, learning with a qualified coach could be the key for further achievements. Another bright spot of the event was Gal Hanna Krisztina (14, HUN) the only female participant who won 26 rating points against strong male opponents.
