China’s Ju Wenjun
After two weeks and 12 games of fierce Classical Chess competition that ended in a tie, China’s Ju Wenjun retained the Women’s World Chess Champion title after winning the Tiebreak playoff with a score of 2½-1½ against the challenger, Russia’s Aleksandra Goryachkina.
Aleksandra faced an older, more experienced, higher-rated Ju Wenjun in Rapid Chess and Blitz Chess in the Tiebreak format.*
One Armageddon Chess Game. Next, if these Rapid and Blitz chess games still do not break the stand-off, then the match will be determined with one Armageddon Chess game.
