A key encounter in the early rounds included a time scramble between Colm Daly and Tom O'Gorman which many spectators considered to be a drawn knight v. bishop endgame, but Colm found a winning resource.
Three players ended up tied for 2nd place after the final round as shown in the table below. The sudden death play-offs lasted for a further six games. Tom O'Gorman defeated Jonathan O'Connor first, but he then lost to David Murray who was in turn defeated by Jonathan to restart the play-off cycle. Jonathan then defeated Tom and drew with David to secure 2nd place as David lost to Tom with a checkmate in the early middle-game.
