Draws on the top boards didn't change the leader board in the final round. Viktorija Cmilyte is crowned champion after finishing on 9/11, ahead of Antoaneta Stefanova on 8½, with Elina Danielian (bronze) and Svetlana Matveeva (fourth) on 8/11.

The Lithuanian No.1 Viktorija Cmilyte also led going into the last round last year, but then her loss to Pia Cramling led to her having to settle for the silver medal.

Today however, a draw was sufficient for her to go one better this time around, as her closest rivals also drew. This is her first title as European Individual Champion.

So Antoaneta Stefanova obtained the silver, with Svetlana Matveeva and Elina Danielian in equal third.

All those thirteen players finishing on 7½ or more are now qualified for the next World Championship event.
