Possibly a tournament defining game Ian Kilpatrick draws against Sergio Esteve Sanchez. Thereby allowing Brendan Jamison (Grandmaster Slayer) to lead the tournament. The young Daniil gets an excellent result against Mikhail Pavlov and Liam Ferris continues to do well drawing against Callum Ormerod.

With 6 people in the throw for the top. The draw gives the two top players what should be relatively straghtforward pairings. But Ram provides an upset and gains a draw against Sergio. Leaving the result in Ians hands - who beats Daniil to win the tournament. Other good results from Vincent Crean drawing against Ian Woodfield and Liam Ferris who had an excellent tournament drawing against Robert Lavery.
