Otherwise it was a great event at Økern Portal in Oslo

Team PWC having fun
Team Ernst & Young with Marte & Vilasini vs Team Sci Group with the FIDE Vice President Jøran Janson & Sunniva
Team Play Magnus 1 with Olga and Maria performed well.
9-year old Adrian impressed with his mature chess. His only problem was that he had to stand in order to reach the board. Next year he will be both stronger and taller so the opponents will need to watch out.
The audience were strong (Askild Bryn, GM Aryan Tari & GM Davis Howell.
We would like to thank all sponsors and participants for making this into a lovely afternoon.
