The winner and prize winners were determined by additional indicators. In particular, the first place was assigned to Germany's Elisabeth Paehtz, Russian chess player Anastasia Bodnaruk became second. Muzychuk ranked third and Ushenina was fourth.

Muzychuk was earlier reported to have skipped the Rapid & Blitz Chess Championships in Saudi Arabia in December 2017 because of the way the kingdom treats women as "secondary creatures."
