The last round was full of interesting games as well as relatively short draws, done in order to get into the first 14. The European Championship is traditionally a qualifying event for the Knock-Out World Championship and this year there were 14 qualifying spots.

So, Gunina made a relatively quick draw against Muzychuk, Kosintseva won a long game against Zhukova, while Melia drew against Danielian to share 3rd and to get it due to better tie-breaks.
