The Peruvian trio at the top of the standings was completed by FM Diego Cuéllar, who obtained the same amount of points as the Spaniard IM Horacio Saldaño, but achieved a better score in the tie-breaks.

The event was a 10 player single round-robin. Players from five different countries participated in the competition.  The time control was 90 min + 30 sec increment per move.
