Chessgames.com Chess Event Description
FIDE Online Steinitz Memorial (Women) (2020)

The FIDE Online Steinitz Memorial featured two 10-player double round-robins on chess24 from May 15-17 to celebrate the 1st World Chess Champion Wilhelm Steinitz (1836-1900). In the Women's section (this page), the prize fund was 12,000. Time control: 3 minutes per player for all moves, with a 2-second increment from move 1. No draw offers allowed before move 30. If two or more players scored the same number of points, the tie was decided by: a) the results of the games between the players involved in the tie, b) the total number of wins, c) Sonneborn-Berger score. A tie for 1st would be decided by an Armageddon game, where White had 5 minutes to Black's 4 but a draw counted as a win for Black. Organizers: FIDE and chess24. Chief arbiter: Nebojsa Baralic.

Top seed and World Blitz Champion Kateryna Alexandrovna Lagno beat Tingjie Lei in the Armageddon game (Tingjie Lei vs Lagno, 2020) and won the first prize of 3,000.

May-18-20  et1: The last game between Kateryna and Tingjlie in Armageddon will be famous one day. It lasted 152 moves which must be a record in that format. Furthermore between move 101 and move 128 Kateryna who only needed a draw to win moved her bishop of white colors 28 times back and forth between b7 and c6. Incredible. This is what great sport is about. Check here - https://www.chessbomb.com/arena/202...
May-19-20  SirChrislov: be famous one day or left in oblivion?
embarrassing play by both sides I'd say, a back and forth silly dance until white had to do something but had no good moves so ended up losing. she won legally and I know 1st prize was at stake but the game left a bad image. As GM Eduard Gufeld used to say...

"this is not chess."

May-19-20  SirChrislov: Zhansaya Abdumalik of Kazakhstan scored 10 out of 18, that's amazing for someone in the weak trio of the group. congrats to her.
