A végső sorrend: Aronyan, Nakamura, Rapport, Vachier-Lagrave. Aronyan 25 000, a női verseny győztese: az 54 éves Pia Cramling 15 000 fonttal gazdagodott.

Gibraltáron is voltak szabadnaposak

Nem új keletű dolog a sakkban,hogy aki nem kér párosítást az kap egy fél pontos erőnyerést SZABADNAPPAL ! Tudni kell, hogy Gibraltáron is bárki kivehetett szabadnapot. A szabadnapos fordulóra egy félpont illeti meg. Természetesen ennek nincs élőpontszám vonzata.Nem nyer és nem veszít vele élőt.
