Vacation Time on Ficgs

I am confused about what is the point of booking vacation time, as the "game clock" will keep running. Can someone explain to me please.

Vacation Time & 60 days limit per move

Hi Charlie, it is explained when you take some days of vacation :

Rules 11.4 : "Any move in any game shall be played in a maximum period of 60 days, otherwise the game will be adjudicated on time."

Note : The time per move clock is still running during vacation.

Anyway, it's not really convenient to remember so I'll add it in the Help section.

Is taking a vacation time during the world championship allowed? Miloš

Yes Miloš

Actually I haven't looked it up, but I don't why it would be any different. World championships are running all the time.

Hello Miloš, yes it is allowed, as in any tournament but while playing a bullet/lightning/blitz game.

Thanks William and Thibault,
There was just the diction "All games during the whole cycle are played in 30 days + 1 day / move" which confused me. Now, I am relaxed about that. Milos
