The 2018 FIDE Women's World Chess Championship, held from November 3-23 in Khanty-Mansiysk, Russia, features 64 players in a series of knockout chess matches.

The early rounds are two games each, plus a tiebreak if necessary. The final is a match of four chess games, plus a possible tiebreak, with the winner declared the Women's World Champion.

The prize fund is USD $450,000 with the winner taking home $60,000. Chess players receive 90 minutes for the first 40 chess moves followed by 30 minutes for the rest of the chess game with a 30-second increment from move one.

The tiebreaks consist of two 25 min + 10-sec increment rapid chess games, then if needed two additional 10+10 games, two 5+3 blitz games and finally a single Armageddon game, where White has 5 minutes to Black's 4, but a draw counts as a win for Black.
