Recently we've informed you that the Russian Chess Federation (RCF) plans to hold a large international tournament MGSU Cup "Our Heritage." Now we got to know that it will be a rapid competition. The decision was made on one of the working meetings between Nikita Kim, the First Vice-President of MCF, and Prof. Oleg Egorychev, the First Vice-Rector (MGSU), - reports  

The competition is scheduled to be held from November 8th to November 11th. "Vladimir Palikhata, the President of MCF, set the task to make this tournament one of the largest events among European festivals over a period of three years. There's everything needed for this kind of progress: excellent conditions, the team of professionals," - the website quotes Nikita Kim.

We have compared the classical and rapid tournaments in the large interview with Emil Sutovsky who was on the air of Chess-News radio today. According to GM, holding rapid competitions is cheaper and this is the main factor that influences on the organizers' choice of the competition format.
