Yanis Galuzo, the silver medalist from Swedish Masters 2012 got his revenge. Yesterday, the Russian star won a comfortable 4-0 victory in the final against Michal Hvizd. The Czech only scored three goals and was never close to threaten Galuzo. Swedish veteran Lars Henriksson put pressure on Galuzo in the quarter final by winning the fifth game after sudden death, but Galuzo turned 2-3 into a 4-3 victory.
Jan Dryak (CZ) and Finn Fries (SE) shared the bronze medal.
Champion of the Juniors final was the Swedish 13 year old Oscar Henriksson who, in the final, beat Czech Honza Sládek pretty comfortably. The road to the finals was all but comfy, as both Henriksson and Sládek were under pressure from the Finnish Eriksson brothers Kevin and Aleksi, their respective games going the full distance of seven games.
With Henriksson claiming his first Swedish Masters title and Honza Sládek getting the second place, the bronze was shared between earlier mentioned Kevin Eriksson and Czech Martin Madera.
