   On December 18, 2016, four players (Mr_Penings, nOcHeaTiNgKiD, ChessNut6453v3, and Hanqi) participated in the first Bullet Quad on chess.com. The tournament was organized by Mr_Penings and ChessNut6453v3. The time control was 2 1 unrated so the players can take their time and not rush their moves to flag their opponents. We agreed to play a double round robin because in a typical quads, two players will have to play two blacks, which is unfair. After the rounds were over, Hanqi finished in first place with 4.5/6, a very strong performance! Mr_Penings got 2nd place with 3.5/6, ChessNut6453v3 took 3rd with 2.5/6, and nOcHeaTiNgKiD got last place with 1.5/6. I will give a short summary of the rounds plus include some of the most intense games! Enjoy!

*There is a brilliancy prize for the most exciting game, which is to be judged by readers! Just comment which of the games below you think should win the brilliancy prize*
