Daniel Johns scored half a point, and in the last game to finish, Lucase Yang also held the GM to a draw. Special book prizes were awarded to Allen Li (who had the GM on the ropes for a while) and David Zhu.

This annual event usually features the President's team but the President stepped aside to even up the numbers. It should be noted that the President picked the teams on the basis of internal ratings; the Secretary was not involved! The result: 6-3 for the Secretary's team.
