Because the tournament had many entries, the main consolation event was restricted to 22 players. It was decided to have a frist session on 10 tables and to have then a B-category. 16 players compted for the main victory and everything was deiced int he last session when Bruno Timpano (Seraing) and Steffen Despretz (AS Hennuyer) played the final together. The game ended on a draw and Timpano took the honors thanks to the best goal-difference. Frank Lannoy (Temploux) took the third place.

The second category had 8 players playing three sessions of games. Anthony Carion (AS Hennuyer) was the only player to win his three games and therefore he was declared winner while Jody Henrioul (Eugies) was runner-up.
