Chessgames.com Chess Event Description
World Cup (Women) (2002)

The 2002 FIDE Women's World Cup was a 24-player tournament held from 10-20 October at the 5-star Sikara hotel in Ramoji Film City outside Hyderabad, India. It was organized by FIDE and the All India Chess Federation, and was not a part of any World Championship cycle. The participants were first divided into four 6-player round-robin groups (10-14 October), from which the first two players advanced to an 8-player knockout (15-20 October). The announced time control (100 minutes for the first 40 moves, then 50 more minutes for the next 20 moves, followed by 10 more minutes until the end, with 30 seconds added per move from move 1) was replaced just before play began with 90 minutes for the whole game with 30 seconds added per move from move 1. The total prize fund was US $100,000. Games started at 2 pm. Chief arbiter: Casto Abundo. Number of games played: 76.

Players with same number of points were separated by the Koya coefficient. The top two players from each group now played a knockout tournament, each match consisting of two Classical games (same time control). If 1-1, then two 15+10 Rapid tiebreak games, and if still equal, individual sudden death Rapid games with 4+10 for White and 5+10 for Black until there was a win (a draw did not count as a win for Black). Yuhua Xu beat Stefanova 1½-½ in the final and took home the first prize of US $16,000.
