    As this is a correspondence chess site, there is no provision for a game to be played that quickly. It is possible to play a fairly quick game, but it will require that you find an opponent who is willing to stay online and play it out at a fast pace.

    When setting up a game, there is no provision for setting time controls that would enforce such a fast game. The fastest setting is one day per move, with a zero time bank.

    That means you could get started in a fast-paced game, but you or your opponent could slow down to one move per day at any time, and there would be no way to force a return to faster moves.
