A little more than a week is left before the start of the first official tournament in the new sports season. The first round of the Spring Stage of the Regular Championship of 2019 starts on February 3 at 15:00 Moscow time. The format of the tournament has not changed. The competition system as a whole looks also familiar. Last year, it proved its effectiveness, it did not cause serious complaints, so the newly elected League Council decided to confine itself to point corrections. So, the Alena Serebrova Memorial is shifted to March, and also transferred to the blitz settings - there was clearly not enough competition in the fast dots in the calendar. And, of course, a new tournament. It will be called the Challenge Cup, conducted in the same way as the Open Cup, but the category will be reduced, since the leaders of the rating list will not be able to take part in it.

Dots is our game!
