The Russian Cup Finals among men (16 participants) and women (8 participants) take place in Khanty-Mansiysk on December 4-13, 2019. 

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 move 61, and a draw counts as a win for Black.
