European Championship (Women) (2001)

The 2nd European Women's Individual Championship was an 11-round Swiss tournament held at the Marriott Hotel in Warsaw, Poland, 22 April - 4 May 2001, with a rest day on 28 April and a day for playoffs on 4 May. A total of 157 players participated, including 1 GM and 13 IM's. It was organized by the Polish Chess Federation under the aegis of the European Chess Union and the City of Warsaw. FIDE's new and faster time control was used: 75 minutes for the first 40 moves, then 15 more minutes to finish the game, with 30 seconds added per move from move 1. The first 29 players would qualify for the 2001 World Women's Championship tournament. If players were tied for medals or qualifying places the separate ties would be broken by a knockout system, each match consisting of two Rapid games (15 min + 10 sec) and if necessary an Armageddon game (5 vs 4 min + 10 sec). Prize fund: about 50,000 German marks, with 10,000 marks to the winner. Number of games played: 858 Classical + 106 Rapid + 21 Armageddon = 985.

Almira Skripchenko won the 7-player playoff for medals and became the 2nd European champion, ahead of Kovalevskaya (2nd) and Arakhamia-Grant (3rd). The fitst 29 players (excl. reserves) qualified for the Women's World Championship Knockout Tournament (2001). Playoff games (places 1-7): 2nd ch-EUR Women Playoffs (2001) (Arakhamia-Grant vs Galliamova 1-0 is missing).
