Today we can already congratulate some players. German boy Maximilian Paul Maetzkow wins the EUYCC U-11. He has now 7 points our of 8 and is already 1,5 points ahead to Zal Urh and two points to Aras Jonas Lazaravicius (LTU). Diana Mirza (IRL) will be the new champion in girls ranking of EUYCC U13. She has 6 points. Neither Saule Gailiunaite (LTU) nor Polterauer (AUT) can catch her tomorrow.

Very close to win the tournament are Barnaba Persanyi (HUN) in age group U-9 and Valentin Dragnev (AUT) in age group U-15. Both are one point ahead to the second placed player. Dragnev has furthermore the much better tie so Peczely (HUN) will need a miracle in the last round to take Dragnev the championship.
