  PhilFeeley: New champ Kosteniuk not playing. Guess she wanted a break.
Nov-07-16  Octavia: dritte!
Nov-08-16  waustad: Many players are not present. Looking at Pamhagen, for example, their top board in Novi Sad is listed as #6 for their team in the Austrian Frauenbundesliga. I'm also surprised that the entire German FBL never seems to attend these, though it might be difficult since most of the top boards from Baden Baden are playing for Monaco.

Silver to defending champions NONA Batumi, bronze to Ugra.

Hou Yifan, in addition to team gold, also won the gold on the top board.
