National arbiter Malgorzata Kopaczek-Styczen, FM Mads Vestby-Ellingsen with IM norm, IA Erling Skjelstad and Anniken Vestby.
Round 9 was a great success when Mads Vestby-Ellingsen secured his second IM norm. Hungarian Bence Korpa still leads with a half point down to Sebastian Bogner at 6.5 points. Then 4 players follow with points. At first table in the last round, Mads Vestby-Ellingsen plays against Benke Korpa, and it is ready for a thriller in the last round. Theoretically, there are players who can still take first place.
