  3. I am the fastest player on Lichess


I am the fastest player on Lichess.

If you think you can be faster, challenge me to a game of moving pieces back and forth (please also read the rules below).

RULES of the challenge:

1. No auto-clicking software. One can use a mouse, a touchscreen, a tablet, a trackpad, a trackball or other input devices. One can also do any modifications to the Lichess board: disabling animations, zen mode, custom sounds, etc. But the moves must be made manually.

2. Players must move pieces ONLY on their side of the board (1-4 horizontals for white, and 5-8 horizontals for black). 1 accidental slip to a further horizontal for every 10 games is allowed (2 slips will result in a loss of the game where a slip happened). Any moves are allowed as long as they are within the four horizontals.

3. Automatic draw on threefold repetition must be disabled (settings --> game behaviour --> Claim draw on threefold repetition automatically --> never).

4. A game is played until a 50-move rule draw or until one of the player's timeout. The victorious side is ONE THAT HAS MORE TIME LEFT ON THE CLOCK (even in case of a draw).

5. The games must be casual, ultrabullet time control. 10 or more games.

If I don't see your challenge, leave a comment here or write me a private message, and we'll play!

Examples of the challenge:

I'm obviously going to lose (I play on a touchpad which is pretty slow) but the 50-move rule maybe gives me some chances.

yyy whatever you say

well I played and never got him below 12 seconds, turns out we were both playing touchscreen

"Fastest" isn't about moving pieces back and forth...

@lovlas I challenged him to a 1+0 game and he was scared...

lol he plays Ra1 and Ra2 back of forth and thinks he is fast....

@Chesstroll_Ingot did you know that if you played this challange against yourself you could always win?

I got him down to 14.8 OMG dis guy is fast

@Chesstroll_Ingot just go to and prove! :)
