Numbers were up on last year, likely due to Catherine's homemade lunches. As an experiment, they had a formal game review session at tiered levels, between rounds two and three, and most players chose to attend, enjoy and debate. The schedule accommodated this with the main time preserved, but byoyomi made more aggressive.

Toby Manning was again the overall winner.
