The Russian Rapid Grand Prix final was a knock-out event featuring 16 players. The prize fund was 1.4 million rubles (about $45,000); 1st prize - 320,000 rubles. It was held in Kirov on December 23-24.

The major sensation of the tournament was Vladislav Artemiev's performance. The 14-year old IM has one of the highest ratings on PlayChess and his own fan club on (the largest Russian social network), where his fans publish a lot of funny demotivators about their hero. In the Rapid Grand Prix final he defeated such a solid GM as Alexander Galkin, Russian Chess Champion Dmitry Andreikin and another chess prodigy - GM Sanan Sjugirov.

Here is a typical example of the art. The caption reads: "Vladik, thank you for the draw!"

Dreev (2748) - Kim (2068): 2-0
Andreikin (2712) - Dordzhieva (2091): 2-0
Savchenko (2634) - Ubiennykh (2329): 2-0
Sjugirov (2665) - Sukhareva (2248): 2-0
Stukopin (2517) - Ponkratov (2624): 1.5-0.5
Artemiev (2536) - Galkin (2623): 2-1*
Maletin (2595) - Yudin (2621): 2-1*
Shomoev (2488) - Smirnov (2627): 2-1*

*In the case of a tie an Armageddon game had to be played.

Dreev (2748) - Maletin (2595): 2-0
Shomoev (2488) - Savchenko (2634): 2-0
Artemiev (2536) - Andreikin (2712): 1.5-0.5
Sjugirov (2665) - Stukopin (2517): 2-1

Artemiev (2536) - Sjugirov (2665): 2-0
Dreev (2748) - Shomoev (2488): 1.5-0.5
