FIDE Women's World Rapid Championship

The 2018 King Salman FIDE Women's World Rapid Championship is a 12-round Swiss open taking place in St. Petersburg, Russia from 26-28 December. The prize fund is $150,000, with $40,000 for 1st place. The time control is 15 minutes per player for all moves, with a 10-second increment per move from move 1. If there is a tie for the 1st place, the top 2 players will compete in a play-off match consisting of two 3+2 blitz games. If the score is still level, the players shall play a sudden death or Armageddon game. The player who wins the drawing of lots may choose the color. The player with the white pieces gets 5 minutes to Black's 4 (with a 2-second increment only from move 1), but a draw counts as a win for the player with Black. Official website: wrbc2018.com/en
