No new tournaments from chess.com?

I'm not seeing any new tournament from chess.com to be started on May 1st. Anything happening?

They're not every month. The official chess.com tourneys are every three or so months I belive, I do not know the frequency of the quick knock out ones.

As I understand, chess.com creates a tournament every month. The type of tournament could be

Normal tournament

Quick knock-outs

Thematic

I entered in thematic tournaments in Nov and in Feb. Normal tournament in Mar and Dec. I was not eligible for the quick knock-outs in Jan and Apr. I was expecting a thematic tournament in May 1st. Hence my disappointment.

I agree, I only play in official tournaments now as it solves so many problems.  I've about finished my current lot of games and was looking forward to the next section.  Maybe chess.com is busy doing taxes?

Seem Patzer24 has a life outside of the site. Amazing but true.

"Chess.com's own Patzer24 was there as well! Although I did not fair to well in the Open section against all these GMs/IMs."
