43 players started in the A-Open, including six Grandmasters, and the Swiss Grandmaster Noel Studer dominated the tournament from beginning to end. He started the tournament with seven wins and finished with two draws to come clear first with 8.0/9.

In round six Studer won a crucial – and fine – game against one of his main rivals, GM Alberto David.
