This is the 18th RAPID Chess.com Tournament! Only players who play their games QUICKLY (who have a low Avg. Time per Move) and who have completed 5 games already can register. Games have a 1 day time control and the games in the round start immediately! (That is 10 games starting right away and going fast!!)

Think fast and good luck!

    I reported valerychessplayer for his obvious use of computer assistance in his games, and it seems that the people at chess.com agreed with me and banned him.

    Sadly, the damage was already done in our tournament group, and he only suffered two losses as a result of his ban since he had won his other 6 games so rapidly.

    Let this serve as a warning to the next player or players who attempt to use a program to beat me. I have been a cheat sniffer for years on two other chess sites, and I know when I am playing against a program.

    If you suspect that your opponent is cheating, please bring your complaint to the chess.com management. If you do not know how to do that, please message me and I will guide you.
