Russian Cup Final
Khanty-Mansiysk
Russian Cup Final  


The Russian Cup Finals among men (16 participants) and women (8 participants) take place on December 4-13, 2018, in Khanty-Mansiysk. 

Both tournaments are knock-out events. The match days: open - December 5-12, women - December 5-10. Each round consists of two games of 90 minutes + 30 seconds per move for each player. Draw negotiations before the move 40 are not allowed.

In case of a tie, the players proceed to a tie-break, which starts with two rapid chess games (15'+10''). If the rapid games also end in a draw, the match is decided in an Armageddon game - White gets 5 minutes against Black's 4 minutes, 3 bonus seconds per move for each player are added after the move 61, and a draw counts as a win for Black. There is no match for the third place.

The prize fund of the open event is 1,200,000 roubles, while women's prize fund is 400,000 roubles. 

Chief Arbiter is IA Mikhail Kryukov (Moscow Oblast).
