Keymer drew with Agdestein and has black against Hammer in the last round; that's 3 Norwegians, plus 6 Danes, not that it matters results
Board 1 featured a brutal end from a seemingly quiet position.


Black needed to play 22...Nc7 to protect the rook on e8 (or move the knight on d7 to b6 or c5 to allow the queen to protect the rook on e8). Still a relatively surprising finish, though.
