In nine matches, Liem won four points and faced a draw in five matches with total 6.5 points. Although Quang Liem received high points, his points were less than of chess player Li Chao B (China) and Nguyen Ngoc Truong Son.

Besides this, the Vietnam Women players played poorly in their competition such as Pham Le Thao Nguyen, Nguyen Thi Mai Hung, and Nguyen Thi Thanh An.

Hence Quang Liem will be one of three players in the Vietnam team to participate in the 2013 World Cup in Norway in August.
