China was determined to not miss another title and sent a bunch of strong players this time. In the past two OEMC's they found out that the Europeans had catched on and that they needed to 'step up'. And so they did: besides Linghua, 4 more Chinese players ended in the Top 10 (places 4, 6, 7 and 9) and with 85 table points (best 3 players) they also claimed the Country Price. Runner up here was France (78), just before Danmark with 77 points.
