Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Singov, who was originally placed for the finals, failed to attend the final match and was therefor disqualified from the tournament. Paul was chosen to play in the finals against Quick as a replacement for Singov. Singov did not receive his award; instead, it was awarded to Bryant, who had been moved up to third place as a result. Avallone and Lindhout were moved up and tied for fourth place.[16]
