The winner was top seeded Etienne Bacrot (pictured) of France with a 7/9 score, half a point clear of Parimarjan Negi, Ruben Felgaer and Tornike Sanikidze. 

A total of 34 players took part, and Bacrot won €2,000 for his first-place finish.

The time control was 40 moves in 120 minutes, followed by 30 minutes to finish the game.

      In the first game wouldn't 29 Re8 be good for white?

    Nice endgame technique in the final game (shown) against Ruben Felgaer!  Not sure if black played the endgame with no errors, but white managed to find a non-trivial setup that allowed their king to break into what looked like a fortress on black's king-side.

    Seems like he should have lost that round 1 game after move 24. Weird setup, backward pawn on c-file, knight has no squares. But what do I know...
