Finland's inaugural WASPA tournament

The final between Marko Karhunen and Miku Leppälä
The first WASPA tournament in Finland was played on sunday  with 8 players on 4 tables without referees. 7 rounds in a group were played first and then the final games. Miku Leppälä was the most positive surprise as he scored a last minute equalizer against Jani Mustonen on the last group game and therefore he reached his first ever final. (Anyway there was a rumour about him in a tournament final in year 1991). In the final Miku didn’t have a chance as Marko Karhunen beat him 5-1.
