The Moscow Tournament of 2018 is won by Romanian Arpad Rusz

with a highly original rook endgame resulting in a mating attack after mutual queen promotions.

The move 4. Rh1!!, in comparison to the try 4. Rf1?, the composer describes as a "pseudo-Turton",

All in all, 30 studies competed and judge Sergey Osintsev decided to award 5 prizes (1 special prize).
