In spite of the various circumstances, many players joined us and the room was completely full.
We’d like to express thanks to everyone who attended our test in his/her busy schedule.

As a result, Martin Barkwill (UK) got the highest score, followed by Cumhur Bektüre (Turkey). Tebrik ederim!

Our test booklets were translated into Turkish by Arda, the president of WBF Turkey. Also, he prepared a special room for us and helped us a lot. Cüneyt helped us as a test supervisor. Other staff assisted us in a committed manner. It was great!

We have no words to express our thanks to all of the participants and the staff in Istanbul Open.

We’ll see each other again next year :)
