Sushkov got the 4th place after dramatic loss in the last round.Taimla could not find the win against Kozhin and therefore also missed his chance to get the 3rd place at the end and dropped to the 6th place. Purk made a nice finish and got the 5th place. Savrasova still secured the important 7th place despite unlucky finish.

Wu Di has now the Personal Place for next World Championship in 2009.
