Parallel with the main event, Biel traditionally runs an Open section, the "Masters". This year, 11-round Swiss was contested by 78 players and the first prize winner was Emil Sutovsky. 

The Israeli GM, who combines his playing career with training work and activity as President of the ACP, has not had such a success for a long time. Over the last 18 months, his rating has been falling and he has featured in fewer and fewer top tournaments. In Sutovsky's own words on Facebook, he "received an invitation to Biel at the last moment" and "to my own surprise, decided to sit down at the board with no pre-tournament preparation."
