Ten players took part in the single round-robin competition, with Giri ending a very convincing winner on 7½/9, a full two points ahead of his nearest rival.
In the parallel 6-player double round-robin women's competition Zhaoqin Peng sealed her 13th Dutch title, and her 12th in a row, by an even wider margin of three points.
Peng won a staggering 9 games, drew none, and lost just one in the seventh round to Martine Middelveld. An excellent performance from the Chinese-born star.
