In 2019 the first two rounds were held in Votkinsk, while the remaining nine rounds were held in Izhevsk. The women's event was a round robin featuring many notable players, such as ex-Women's World Chess Champion Alexandra Kosteniuk, the current Challenger Alexandra Goryachkina, the reigning Women's European Champion Alina Kashlinskaya, three-time Women's European Champion Valentina Gunina, et al.

Just like last year, Alexandra Goryachkina won the bronze medal. Also, repeating the scenario of 2018, Natalia Pogonina and Olga Girya tied for 1st place - this time with an amazing 8/11 points. However, this time Olga prevailed in the play-offs (1-1 in rapid, win as White in Armageddon) and secured her first Women's Russian Champion title.

Natalia shared the 1st place for the third year in a row, ending up with one gold and two silver medals. With an impressive 2608 performance, she earned 21.6 rating points - the biggest rating gain at the Superfinal in her career so far.
