The IM sections brought success for young Chinese girls as two of them, Wang Doudou and Xu Huahua, performed WIM norms causing hard times in all games to their male opponents.

Xu, Huahua /CHN/ (3rd WIM norm)

They play far much better than their present ratings. IM Galyas Miklos (HUN) as favorite played at high level and his victory was convincing and unquestionable. He should play again in the GM section instead.

Colorful play of IM Lengyel Bela (HUN), formerly three times Champion of Budapest was reminiscent of those old times.
