The chess tent on Bauman street was bursting with life – a blitz tournament for children took off on June 7 at 3 pm. 32 young players were divided into two groups and competed in a single elimination round. Players who won their games qualified for the main tournament, a 5-round Swiss, and those who lost continued to play in a consolation tournament.
Alan Zaripov won the main event with 4.5 points, Ilmir Farukhov was second with 4 points, Timofey Grigoriev was third with 3.5 points.
All players received diplomas and gifts from the organizers. The top three players were awarded additional prizes.
