    Hopefully paly will resume by the end of the week for me...248 left is good especially if we are dropping 50-100 games a day

    If that's correct, then the TD should kick him out.

    "24hr. knockout" should mean something.Me ? i finished up last week.....some just linger and linger. in one tour. a player is holding up the 1st. round...one  move from a forced mate----using a manth of vac. time. SILLINESS!

    JoeHempel1,

    The "3 Hour Avg Move Time" is a statistic that you need to achieve in order to even qualify to enter the tournament.  It has nothing to do with how fast you actually play after the tournament starts.

    I guess I'm spoiled in that I have an android app. My games tend to go quickly because I can make a move wherever I'm at

    the guy holding up the 16th is not in this  must have been on vaction and did not get a chance to sign up . Im already knockout of this one . Now I can wait for the16 to start again in the second round for me or about three weeks

    Absolutely crazy!!! Im new to this online tourney stuff, and when I saw "quick" I had no idea it would be a month or more for rounds to end. Wow. So why set a 3 hour avg move time if it means nothing??

    After a couple of hours 20 games have finished.  We are now down to 741.  This round is still progressing nicely.  You can't complain about people on vacation until you have less than 25 games left.  We really had 20 games finish in the last 2 hours that is great.  If this round finishes within a month of the start date, then that is about right.

    If you want to see a "quick" tournament round where you can legitamatly complain about vacation then take a look at the other "quick" tournament that I have entered.  This one started April 1st.  We are now 3 months and 8 days into round 1.  There REALLY is one guy holding up the entire thing.  He hasn't made a move in over a month, and still has two weeks of vacation time left.

    I see 761 games remaining.  That one guy holding everything up had better hurry to get through all 761.   Hopefully chess is his day job, and better yet, if he doesn't require any sleep, then that would help as well.  <end sarcasm> 

    Of course we are not waiting on any one (or even 10) players.  No one can continue with the tournament until all 761 games are finished.  And historically speaking, with the vacation time,,, it is possible that this round will not finish in the next few months.   I do agree with you that the "QUICK" tournament should be a no vacation tournament.  Chess.com has other 3 day per move tournaments and that is where the vacation users belong.
