|World Rapid Championship (Women) (2018)|
The 2018 King Salman FIDE Women's World Rapid Championship was a 12-round Swiss open taking place in St. Petersburg, Russia from 26-28 December. The prize fund was $150,000, with $40,000 for 1st place. Time control: 15 minutes per player for all moves, with a 10-second increment from move one. If there was a tie for 1st place, the top two players would compete in a playoff 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 who won the drawing of lots might choose the color, and the player with the white pieces would get 5 minutes to Black's 4, with a 2-second increment after move 60, while a draw counted as a win for Black. Tournament director: Mark Gluhovsky. Chief arbiter: Laurent Freyd.
No playoff was needed, since Ju Wenjun won clear first with 10/12.
