The 43rd FIDE World Chess Olympiad is taking place from 24 September to 5 October 2018 in Batumi, Georgia.
The biennial chess tournament is an 11-round Swiss open, with one rest day on 29 September. The women's chess section features 151 teams from 149 countries, with the 749 players including almost the whole women's world chess elite.
The time control is 90 minutes for 40 chess moves then 30 minutes to the end of the chess game, with a 30-second increment from move 1.
Each team consists of five chess players, with four playing each chess match. Draw offers are not allowed until move 30.
The chess standings are determined first by match points, with 2 points for a win and 1 for a draw, then by game points.
