The annual China-Russia summit that took place in Ningbo, ended in the host team's favor. Chinese men's and women's team scored 29 points combined against Russia's 21 point – a very convincing victory for them! China won both men's and women's classical chess matches. 

The men's match score is 14-11. Bu Xiangzhi (2695) and Maxim Matlakov (2691) both collected 4 points in 5 games, Wei Yi (2724), Lu Shanglei (2595), and Peter Svidler (2740) had 3 points each. Russian team was let down by poor performance of Daniil Dubov (2661) – just 1 point in 5 games, Vladimir Fedoseev (2664) and Nikita Vitiugov (2734) also did not impress, collecting 1.5 points each.

The host victory in the women's match was even more convincing – 15-10. Shen Yang (2465) showed the best result with 4 points. Only one Russian player was able to score at least 50% – Alina Kashlinskaya (2432) had 2.5 points. Valentina Gunina (2548), who had the highest rating in both teams, ended up with 2/5, Olga Girya (2486) and Natalija Pogonina (2465) showed the same result, and the young and promising Aleksandra Goryachkina had a hard time, collecting just 1.5 points in 5 games.
