Participation of three former European Youth Champions made the events particularly interesting this month. Two of them U10 European Champion (2009 Fermo) FM Gledura Benjamin (HUN) and U16 European Team Champion (2009 Pardubice) IM Mihok Oliver (HUN) playing in the GM group caused a lot of trouble for all of their more experienced opponents. U8 European Champion (2011 Albena) FM Krstulovic Alex (HUN) did the same in the FM-A section.

The GM section brought success for IM Nguyen Huynh Minh Huy (VIE) who performed his first GM norm. He won his last four games of which the hardest one was against Gledura Benjamin in round last but one when the youngest player still had good chance to achieve his second IM norm.
