The main tournament was an 11-round Swiss rapid tournament (time control 12+5). The battle for the first place went mainly between two rating favorites - Igor Kovalenko and Alexei Shirov himself. As a result, the organizer finished half a point ahead of his rival. Unlike Kovalenko, Shirov managed not to lose a single game.
