The 5th Russian Minesweeper Chamionship took place on Saturday, December 3, 2011 in Moscow at the Playground computer club. This time the permanent organizer and champion of previous Russian events Roman Gammel did not manage to take part, so the event was organized by Konstantin Forofontov with the help of Arsen Balishyan, who cooperated with Thomas Kolar to ensure the smooth and correct work of the Scoreganizer software, which was used this time to record results and keep online statistics. The same software was used earlier at the 2011 World Minesweeper Championship in Zurich and proved to be a very efficient way of keeping track of results online. The Russian minesweeper community expresses its gratitude to Thomas Kolar for invaluable help.

After a short time setting up, the tournament started at 14:20 Moscow time (11:20 CET) and as usual players had 3 hours to achieve their scores. 10 players took part including the best sweeper in Russia based on current ranking Pavel Mishin. With the exception of Roman Gammel, all 4 other players in Russia who are known to have sub50s were on site, namely Pavel Mishin, Arsen Balishyan, Konstantin Forofontov and Ivan Zybin, who appeared to achieve a 49 (NF, Real Time) in summer this year before finding the community. One could easily predict the 1st and the 2nd place: Pavel Mishin dominated the competition and won with a lead just short of 100 seconds (97.016 seconds) over Arsen Balishyan who won silver. The epic battle for 3rd place, which amused spectators on the IRC channel, was decided within the last minutes of the tournament in favour of Andrey Devyatkin, who managed to overcome Konstantin Forofontov by just 1.659 seconds.

Trophies were given to the 3 best players, medals were given to the 6 best players, and all players received a certificate for taking part.
