Ioannis Papaioannou and Stelios Halkias, well remembered by their fantastic live commentary during the Thessaloniki Grand Prix, and Ukrainian GM Sergey Fedorchuk shared the second place with 7,0 points each.

Papaioannou defeated Canadian GM Bator Sambuev in the last round, while Fedorchuk recovered after the stunning round one loss against Andreas Kelires.

The ultra-talented 14-years old Cypriot Kelires (2075) also beat GM Aleksandr Karpatchev and eventually earned an IM norm. Kelires added 63 elo points.
