Russian Youth Cup 2017  

The Russian Youth Cup (boys and girls) 2017 consists of regional tournaments, which have a status of the stages, and the final tournament. The tournaments are held in the age categories under 9, under 11, under 13, and under 15 years old.

Sporstmen have a right to play in an unlimited number of the Russian Youth Cup stages during the year. Regulations of the stages are developed by regional chess federations and agreed with the Russian Chess Federation. 

The final stage of the Cup takes place during the first ten days of January 2018 according to the round-robin system.

Eight sportsmen take part in each age group. Seven of them are those players who gained the most number of Cup points in any three stages; one participant is the nominee of the regional federation, which organizes the final stage (providing that this sportsman has taken part in no less than three stages). If the final stage organizer doesn’t have “his own” player, the 8th best player of all stages replaces him. In the case of any withdrawal, the substitution is not provided.

In case of a tie between two or more qualifiers, the finalists are determined by the following criteria: 1) the most number of points scored by the participants in all the games of the stages; 2) the least amount of the places, which participants won in the stages.
