  1. Open top prize 80K, women's top prize 25K. That's fair because the top woman would probably have won much less on the open side. It seems no women have chosen to play the open, not even Goryachkina who doesn't need this to qualify for the WC cycle. Very simple setup but a well decorated auditorium, no display boards on stage, no top boards on stage.
