    “Hey! Empoleon6498 (my old username) here! I’m going to start a chess player of the month!” Those words sparked the beginning of the series of forum topics that would soon bring many chess.com members to view and participate in: Chess Player of the Month aka CPOTM. The rules were as follows: nominate a member who you think is in deserving of CPOTM for any reason, and then conduct a voting phase(s) to result in the official winner of CPOTM for that specific month.

    Chess Player of the Month began in February 2010. Each month, there was fierce competition, endless drama, friendships created and broken, and plentiful humor. From all those months until now, there have been chess.com members who were allegedly crowned the title of CPOTM, each fully deserving the title. Now, all these winners will return to face off in the ultimate CPOTM ever of July.

    Three winners will be crowned in the three categories: best chess player, most active, and friendliest. Through different sets of competitions few will stay to the end. What competition will there be? When power shifts during the voting phases, will revenge be taken or will strategy stand? Which decisions will cost the title and which will wreak havoc between specific people? Who will not have the ability to stay and avoid elimination during the competitions? And who will rise above them all in their category taking the title of ultimate chess player of the month? Find out by following this forum post for the month.

    Welcome to the Ultimate Chess Player of the Month July 2012!

    Hello! I am proKnight98. I will explain the complete rules to this CPOTM shortly. I can only say that it will be slightly complicated, but hopefully you will understand. Right now, I will get started with the ceremony for CPOTM July, introducing all the past winners of CPOTM. They deserve all the recognition they can receive!

    haddad56: Haddad56 was the “second” winner of CPOTM February 2010 for the “most online chess games in progress” portion. Most online chess games in progress was stopped after February 2010. Even though haddad56 didn’t official win the CPOTM title, we all know that he would have. Haddad56 is an amazing chess player; he plays with many correspondence games in progress. In addition, he is willing to give out free memberships to members. Also, he is fairly active with 6100+ member points.

    No one misses Alan Two-Door and his burnt-down tarpaper shack.
