Russian Club Championships

The XIII Russian Club Championship and VII Russian Women’s Club Championship are being held from April 19th to May 1st, 2006, in the Russian Black Sea resort of Sochi. Four top teams will qualify for the European Club Cup. Full details are available in our first report.

The main event, the XIII Russian Club Championship, was a round robin tournament with twelve teams. Each team had six main players and two reserves. Time controls were 100 min for 40 moves, then 50 min. for 20 moves, 10 min + 30 sec for the rest of the game.

The first criterion for the final rankings was the number of points on all boards; second was the result of the match between the tied teams; third the number of team victories; and finally the best results on boards 1, then 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. The first four teams qualify for the European Chess Club Cup 2006 (Tomsk-400 automatically qualifies). The prize fund was one million rubles (~US $40,000).

The winners were Ural Sverdlovsk, followed by TPS Saransk, Tomsk-400 and Termosteps Samara. Here is a table of the results of the individual players and the teams:
