Wei Wang led the China A team to victory in the open division, winning all 4 matches. Shinichi Nao also won all his games to help Japan take second.

In the handicap division there were five teams, which meant there were byes and also an unfortunate forced rematch. South London's first team won three matches on number of wins tie-break from St Albans. South London's Patrick Batty and Luke Humphrey and Paul Taylor and Jonathan Green of St Albans won all their games.

The lady professional from the Nihon Ki-in this time was Kobayashi Chizu, 5p, who was visiting with her daughter Anna. She gave two very informative game commentaries to the assembled players.
