Yilmaz entered the event as the rating favourite and did not disappoint, although it was not all smooth sailing for him. After suffering a defeat at the hands of Alparslan Isik, he entered the penultimate round sharing first place with Huseyin Can Agdelen.

The eventual champion of the event finished strong, scoring 1½ points in the final two rounds and came out on top with 6½/9, a full point ahead of Mert Yilmazyerili, Huseyin Can Agdelen, Alparslan Isik and Efe Metehan Yavuz, who tied for the second position.
