8. FAQ

  • What are the time controls mean?
    Time controls are telling you how much time you have for each game.
    G30;d5: Game in 30 minutes with 5 second delay with each move. This means you get 30 minutes, your opponent gets 30 minutes and at each move the clock counts down from 5 to 0 before the player's time starts. If player doesn't use up the whole 5 seconds, that time is lost.
  • How many games/rounds?
    This tournament is a round robin tournament. This means that every player in each quad will be playing against all other players in the quad. Total of 3 games.
