    It's a 3-day per move limit--if you want a faster pace, play in a different tournament.  I'm sure no one in your group could have benefitted from more time to think--the games are probably fit for the pantheon of chess brilliance.

    Want to thank the people in my group - 148. At least they are playing the game at some sort of pace. Just looked at other groups - there are groups where hardly any games have been completed - can you believe, games where only 6 or 7 moves have been made! Oh no.

    Outstanding to play in this tournament. In my group (148) - games were completed within a few moves - games still in progress and some tense current games. No cheaters for sure! Can anybody tell me who goes through to the next round?

    I don't think there are many cheaters in this tournament. Those who cheat dwell far above 2000.

    well i really  can;t say because my  group (33) has yet  to have a   result!

    I'm happy.  My group looks like a "no cheat" group.  Lots of completed games, lots of wins, losses and draws on their profiles, and our games are exciting so far!
