Russian Women's Championship Superfinal
The 67th Russian Women's Championship Superfinal is taking place in the State Museum of the Political History of Russia in St. Petersburg from 3-14 December 2017. Valentina Gunina is top seed for the 12-player round-robin, where the winner receives 500,000 roubles (~7,200 euros) and a Renault Kaptur car. The top three qualify for next year's Superfinal.
The time control is 90 minutes for 40 moves then 30 minutes to the end of the game, with a 30-second increment from move 1. No draw offers are allowed before move 40. A tie for first place is split by two 15+10 rapid games and, if the score is still tied, a 5 vs. 4 Armageddon game, where Black wins if the game ends in a draw. Official website: ruchess.ru
