  Tabanus: Looks like an editor's nightmare.
Nov-01-17  SChesshevsky: Just to be picky. I think it's called Chess.com Speed Chess Championship. They do have 5 minute games which I don't believe are considered bullet.

There were videos of the rounds on youtube last time I checked.

  whiteshark: <Chess.com Speed Chess Championship.> Right!

"The 2017 Chess.com Speed Chess Championship features 16 of the world's best chess players in an innovative eSports bracket tournament...."

Tournament page: https://www.chess.com/article/view/... w/ important information on the event, such as

Format:
<Each 2017 Speed Chess Championship match will feature 90 minutes of 5/2 blitz, 60 minutes of 3/2 blitz, and 30 minutes of 1/1 bullet chess. One chess960 game will be played in each time control at the end of each time period.

<In the event of a match tie, one additional classical game will be played at each time control. If still tied after the best-of-three tiebreaker, a single Armageddon game will be played, with the higher-seeded player to start the match choosing between White with 5 minutes and 0 second increment or Black with 3 minutes and 0 second increment, with Black receiving draw odds.>>
