Demchenko and Keymer share first

The Russian Anton Demchenko won the European Championship in Reykjavik thanks to a better tiebreak than German youngster Vincent Keymer, who also ended on 8,5 points out of 11, both winning €17,500. As usual, the thirty highest ranked European players missed out because they can expect to be seated into the Worldcup 2023, whereas many who played in Reykjavik contended themselves with short draws in the last rounds to assure their qualification.
