Russian Championship Superfinal (2019)

The 72nd Russian Championship Superfinal is taking place in the cities of Votkinsk and Izhevsk, Russia from 10-22 August 2019. The event is a 12-player round-robin, where the winner receives 1 million roubles (~15,000 dollars) and a Renault car. The top three finishers qualify automatically 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. (1)
