Chess Played Quick is Chess.com's monthly event where chess streamers do live speed runs using Chess.com's features.

This December, we're bringing you a special edition featuring multiple of our features. The Chess Played Quick: 2022 Holiday Special Edition happens on December 22 at 9 a.m. PT/18:00 CET. Players have two hours to collect up to 31 bounties, each representing a day of the month. The prize fund for the event is 2,000 Twitch subs.


Format

This edition of CPQ features 31 bounties, each representing a day in December, with each bounty having the date's number in it. Participants have two hours to complete as many bounties as possible and 48 hours to claim them using the proof submission form. Players use their main account to play in this CPQ.

Prizes

The event has a prize fund of 2,000 Twitch subs. Players receive a certain amount of subs for each bounty they complete. The amount of subs per bounty is determined by the total prize fund (2,000 subs) divided by the total number of bounties claimed (for example, if we receive 1,000 valid claims, each bounty is worth 2 subs).
