FIDE about time controls

FIDE about time controls

This topic, very discussed in Correspondence Chess forums (see TCCMB), is also debated in FIDE. We may play games with 1 hour + 10 seconds time control in future open tournaments...

Any opinion ?

OTB 1 hour plus 10 seconds a move. The Fischer time clock manufacturers will be happy with that.....and it makes my old turnier clock obsolete! I checked out the site and read about the candidate matches in June. Boris Spassky is on the appeals committee. I wonder how he will deal with the ridiculous acussations that no doubt will arise.

Spassky's reaction

I hope he will laugh in their faces, give them a good spanking, and send them back to the board play some chess!

In my opinion this time control is too fast...

I agree, actually this is "1h ko" with no loss on time... (less stress and more Fischer clocks, indeed)

That's a pity, I very like 2 hours / 40 moves. Maybe it's useless in some open tournaments, but in others the quality of the games will be affected undoubtly. I hope it will attract more new chess players, I suppose it is the main goal...
