The "Sprint" game mode is 40 lines as fast as you can clear them. The video is using a tournament-specific version of Tetris that accounts for different modes and different block spawning algorithms.

This is the first time anyone has cleared a Sprint in under 20 seconds. It's amazing to think that there are human hands controlling this.

They just... I mean they can't... HOW can that even be real!?

I know! I was a bit skeptical myself, but yeah, they're just really good at looking at what's coming. They never really look at what's coming *now* but planning their next few moves.

Wow. Yeah, its so fast its hard to imagine a person doing that... But with enough practice it seems possible.

Love to see this in person :D

I've see some speed Tetris before, and it always amazes me. This is video is insane, though. I can grasp what's being done (looking ahead and whatnot), but I cannot wrap my mind around the speed it gets accomplished.
