How many moves within 40 days?

Hello, im playing my first tournament. I can't see anywhere in this domain how many moves I have to make within 40 days.

Time control 40 days + 40 d. / 10 moves

Hello Ulrich.

The time control 40 days + 40 days / 10 moves only means you have 40 days more to your clock after you play move 10, move 20 and so on... You may loose the game on time if you don't play the first 10 moves in 40 days, but it doesn't mean that you "always" have to play 10 moves in 40 days during the whole game...

Is it understandable ? :)

Best regards. Thibault

Time control in thematics

How about time controls in thematic tournaments? Suppose the first 12 moves are "given": are there still 40 days for the first 10 moves then?

Winning time?

If i am faster during my first 10 moves I save this time for my second 10 moves?

Time control in thematics + Winning time

Hello Dirk & Ulrich

That's a good remark ! .. The program wouldn't add these first 40 days in thematic tournaments, as move 10 has already been played. Anyway that's fair IMO and not so important with this slow time control.

Ulrich, the answer is yes, the faster you play, the more time you save for the rest of the game...
