The all year round First Saturday events started with five groups for the October series in the pleasantly renewed bright and spacious Conference Hall of the MEDOSZ Hotel in the centre of Budapest.

A seven member Kuwait delegation for the Master’s section made the event especially interesting.
The GM group was played in double RR system for 6 players. The highest rated GM Berczes David (HUN) proved his rating real, winning the tournament in convincing style. The other two GM-s showed also good forms so there was no room left for the three candidates to achieve any title norms this month.
