Despite an early defeat he claimed his first victory one round later against fresh Belgian youth champion Eline Verstuyft. Meanwhile, local organiser Ruben Soetens stayed below the radar and won three games along the way. One of them against newcomer Sam, who joined in the very last round. With this final effort, Ruben Soetens prolounges his title of best player of Zottegem for at least a couple of month.
