Last year, fans enjoyed top streamers like GM Hikaru Nakamura, the Botez sisters, the Chessbrahs, and many others smashing Bots in a similar event. Nakamura was the biggest prize winner, cashing in $1,850 for completing three bounties and beating the most bots.

This first edition of Chess Done Quick will feature the biggest chess streamers on Twitch frantically solving puzzles for four hours while attempting to collect as many bounties as possible—like the Longest Streak or Underpromoting for Checkmate. With the rise in popularity of chess speedruns, this event promises to be exciting and full of clippable moments!

Streamers of all levels are welcome to participate in the event, with an open section and an U2000 section. If you want in on the action, fill out the application below!
