The 2018 LOTTO Polish Chess Championship is a 10-player single round-robin taking place in the Trading Room of the Warsaw Stock Exchange from 12-20 May. The top prize is 20,000 PLN (about $5,500) with the top two qualifying for the Polish Chess Olympiad team.

The time control is 90 minutes for 40 chess moves followed by 30 minutes to the end of the game, with a 30-second increment starting from move 1. No draw offers are allowed before move 30 so fighting chess is expected.
