Chessgames.com Chess Event Description
Russian Superfinals (2016)

The Superfinal of the 69th Russian Championship is taking place in the Novosibirsk State Museum of Local History and Nature from 16-27 October 2016. The winner of the 12-player single round-robin becomes the Russian Champion and wins 1 million roubles (about 14,500 euros). The top three automatically qualify for next year's final.

The time control is 90 minutes for 40 moves, followed by 30 minutes to the end of the game, with a 30-second increment from move 1. No draw offers are allowed before move 40. In case of a tie for first, two 15+10 rapid games will be played, followed, if necessary, by 5 vs 4 Armageddon. (1)

Oct-24-16  thegoodanarchist: Why do they call it the "Superfinals"?

I suppose because when it is over, it is super over. Thus making is super final.

Oct-24-16  et1: After eight rounds 13 decisive matches in the men's tournament and 33 in the women's ! Super GMs are masters of drawing and harder to beat ?
Oct-24-16  john barleycorn: <et1: After eight rounds 13 decisive matches in the men's tournament and 33 in the women's ! Super GMs are masters of drawing and harder to beat ?>

Let them challenge the girls to find out.

I imagine if the boys and girls merged into a 24-player Superfinal there'd be a higher decisive rate than either tournament alone.

  HeMateMe: what would Tal, Korchnoi and Kasparov say about all of these draws if it were a USSR final?

Which would, of course, have the bonus effect of creating the heaven-sent opportunity for some posters to kvetch due to the 2700s beating the spots off the women.

  iking: Russians are well educated in chess .. the result seems good ... no run away winner yet, decider tomorrow.
Oct-26-16  et1: one game to go and 11 in 12 contenders can still make 50 percent of points - isn't this remarkable ?

  Pedro Fernandez: I named here two GMs who like me, i.e. V. Fedoseev (21) and G. Oparin (19). About the latter, I continue thinking that this GM has a lot of future. Yes, he lost vs Grischuk and Inarkiev, but I see in Oparin an aggressive and ambitious man. About Fedoseev, certainly he is not a surprise for anyone.

  whiteshark: <abuzic> as the rd 9 game Koka-Inar is not included yet, you have to add +.5 point to your table for both players.

<plang> That's 27.3% It's not high either or is it? ;)

Oct-27-16  cplyakap: Riazantsev became 2016 Russia Champion!Congratz.
Oct-27-16  CountryGirl: Glad Riazantsev won. He's a very talented and decent player.
Oct-27-16  Open Defence: So Grischuk's second is first and Girschuk is second...

No, it's not high - probably a bit below average.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: If you visit page 1, you will see that I *incorrectly* incorrectly (!) picked Riazantsev to win. That means I deserve zero credit because I thought I was wrong!

  HeMateMe: I picked Svidler to not repeat as champ. I thought he was off form.

Yeah that deserves a full quote:

<Oct-15-16 An Englishman: Good Evening: Just for fun, I shall incorrectly pick Riazantsev to win. He won't, but he does play some entertaining chess: L Draskovic vs A Riazantsev, 2015.>
