|Russian Championship (2003)|
The 56th Russian Championship tournament was a 79-player 9-round Swiss held in Krasnoyarsk, Russia, 3-12 September 2003. Rest day: September 7. Most of Russia's best players participated, except the three K's Garry Kasparov, Vladimir Kramnik and Anatoly Karpov. Prize fund: $100,000, with $20,000 to the winner. Rounds started at 2:30 pm local time - last round at 11 am. Time control: 120 minutes for the first 40 moves, 60 more minutes for the next 20 moves, then 10 more minutes until the end of the game, with 30 seconds added per move starting from move 61. Organizer: Valery Zubov and the Russian Chess Federation. Chief arbiter: Vladimir Dvorkovich.
Peter Svidler took his 4th Russian championship title by winning on tiebreak ahead of Alexander Morozevich, both with 7/9.
The 56th Russian Championship was the first ever held in Siberia. It was also the last Swiss. Initiated by the Russian Chess Federation with its President (2003-2009) Alexander Zhukov, the Swiss championship tournament was from 2004 on replaced by a qualifying "Higher League" Swiss tournament (actually two such in 2004) and a 12-player round-robin "Superfinal".
