Comment:  Artem Kachanovsky lost in the 10th and last round to "our" Kim JungHyeop by...half a point, while Ilya Shikchin, who was one victoryt behind Artem before this last round, won to Alexander Dinerstein.  This means that both ended with 8/10...but also that Ilya become European champion 2010, thanks to his better SOS (the breaking system).

So, Artem, who is still only 17 years old, missed the title for just half a point. Nevertheless, he was the big surprise of these championship.
