The playoffs started on Monday as the series format for the quarterfinals is 1-2 to minimize travel. Enisey took advantage of being able to host the first game, taking the series lead with an 80-65 win over Nika in Krasnoyarsk before heading to Syktyvkar. The first game on Tuesday saw MBA win 83-55 in Novosibirsk. A matchup that used to happen later in the playoffs started with Adelina Abaiburova leading Dynamo Kursk to an 84-71 win over Nadezhda in Orenburg. Maria Vadeeva and Ekaterinburg looked like they would win early against their rivals from a different era Spartak Moscow, but the hosts took the lead after the break and were forced into overtime before prevailing 82-80. Each series will continue on Saturday with deciding games on Sunday if necessary.
