Russian Women's Cup Final

Bodnaruk, Anastasia vs. Pustovoitova, Daria

The 2016 Russian Women's Cup Final is an 8-player knockout event taking place in Khanty-Mansiysk, Russia from 5-10 December. The players qualified from events in the Russian Cup series over the last year. Anastasia Bodnaruk and Olga Girya are the top seeds and the prize fund is 400,000 roubles or about $6,300. Each mini-match consists of two classical games with 90 minutes per player for all moves and a 30-second increment from move 1. If tied two 15 minute + 10 second rapid games are played, and finally Armageddon, where White has 5 minutes to Black's 4 but a draw counts as a win for Black. Official website: ruchess.ru
