(Review by Arsen Balishyan, 1 Dec 2012):

"The 6th Russian Minesweeper Championship took place on Saturday, 24 November 2012 in Moscow. This time it moved from the usual venue (which used to be Playground computer club) and was hosted at a computer class at the Oktyabrskaya metro station with more light and space for competitors. The event was organized by Konstantin Forofontov with the help of Arvo Leinsoo.

Thomas Kolar once again ensured the smooth and correct work of the Scoreganizer software, which was used this time to record results and keep online statistics. This software was used earlier at the World Minesweeper Championship in Zurich (2011) as well as the 5th Russian Minesweeper Championship (2011) and proved to be a very efficient way of keeping track of results online. This enabled people from other Russian cities to take part in the competition online. However, all the top players this time managed to get to the venue.

After a short time setting up, the tournament started at 14:23 Moscow time (11:23 CET) and as usual players had 3 hours to achieve their scores. 8 players took part on site including the best sweeper in Russia based on the current ranking, Pavel Mishin. All other top players in Russia who are known to have sub50s were on site, namely Roman Gammel, Arsen Balishyan, Konstantin Forofontov and Ramil Gafiyatov. One could easily predict the 1st and the 2nd place: Pavel Mishin dominated the competition and won with a lead of 34.741 seconds over Roman Gammel who won silver. The epic battle for 3rd place this time was decided within the last minutes of the tournament in favour of Ramil Gafiyatov, who managed to overcome Arsen Balishyan by just 5.667 seconds. Ramil won his 3rd place for the first time in a Russian Championship.

A trophy was presented to the winner, medals were given to the 6 best players, and all players received a certificate for taking part."
