World Blitz Championship (Women) (2019)

The 2019 Women's World Blitz Championship was a 17-round Swiss open (for players rated >2250) held at Luzhniki Stadium, Moscow, Russia, 29-30 December, with the participation of 122 players, including defending champion Kateryna Lagno. Prize fund: $150,000, with $40,000 to the winner. Time control: 3 minutes per player for all moves, with 2 seconds added per move from move one. If there was a tie for 1st place, the top two players according to the first eligible tiebreak criterion would compete in a play-off match consisting of two 3+2 blitz games. If the score was still level, the players would play a sudden death or Armageddon game (in which the player with the white pieces would get 5 minutes to Black's 4, with a 2-second increment per move after move 60, while a draw counted as a win for Black). No players with t-shirts, shorts, jeans, sneakers, baseball caps or inappropriate dress were allowed in the playing area. No penalty was imposed on a player if she was late for any of her games. Chief arbiter: Panagiotis Nikolopoulos.

Kateryna Alexandrovna Lagno won again with 13/17, ahead of Anna Muzychuk (2nd) and Tan Zhongyi (3rd on tiebreak).
