This is the 23rd 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!

    The only way you would be "holding" folks up is if you were dragging out the very last game of the tnmt while in a fully lost position.  The second round won't start until ALL the round-1 games are done, so take your time and play the game at the pace you are comfortable with.

    sasha64 thanks for that, I've been feeling a bit like I'm slowing the tournament down, since everybody else in my group already finished. I wanted to play faster but I've unexpectedly had limited time these days because of life. I figured making 1-2 moves a day is at least better than going on vacation in what's supposed to be a quick tourney!

    3 hours per move is what your average time neded to be to be able to join the tnmt.  Think of it like your entry requirement.   The actual time control is 24 hours per move; take as much time as you need within that limit.

    I've been criticized by another player for taking more than 3 hours per move.  I understand the time control is 24 hrs. per move.  I've been making two or three moves on most days.  I am within limits or not?
