Time Control Clarification

I am looking for clarification on the interpretation of the time controls, specifically; time : 40 days, increment : 40 days / 10 moves. I presume it is 40 days to make the first 40 moves then it is an additional forty days to make to next 10 (to move 50). This seems to be a disproportionate amount of time for moves 41-50. Thank you, Scott

Hello Scott.

It is 40 days to make the first 10 moves then it is an additional 40 days to make next 10 moves and so on...

Note : There's an accumulated time limit (100 days) rule.

See rules - http://www.ficgs.com/membership.html#playing .. and particularly 11.4

Time Controls

Thank you, it sounds good for a 6 game tournament. From my calculations it has an average of 5 days per move(40 move basis). Are their any other forum readers that are interested in a 7 day(weekly) time control?
