Generally no, though we typically have to wait 2 days for opponents to make their move. In this game I hope so, it's the deciding game which we're winning and Jaymin 's opponent has activated a feature which allows him not to move for a month and a half.
I'm doing it wrong if the aim is to get Platinum membership, but no - we haven't had prizes since last June
Apologies for my shit performance. Stupidly signed up to the Chess.com "daily championship" where you play 22 simultaneous games, and forgot that 3 months ago I signed up to a thematic tournament that started about same time. So had 30 games on the go and I don't think my brain handled it well
