In the final ranking in category Under 11 Benjamin Oh Yau Teng scored 1 point in the last 3 rounds to claim 43rd place with 4 points, but no prize.

In the final ranking in category Under 8, finally, James Kwong Wing Ki scored 3 full points in the last 3 rounds. Round 9 unfortunately saw our 2 Hong Kong boys James paired against Miguel Angel Garceran Wang, both with 5 points.
