Nov-04-06  artemis: <> what is the deal with this tournament? was it classical controls, blitz, rapid, blind fold, etc.?
Nov-04-06  Caissanist: It was classical time control (90 minutes + 40 seconds/move first 40 moves, 30 minutes + 30 seconds/move after). The official web site (Catalan language only) is at

Very impressive result for Dominguez, his performance rating was an estimated 2932.

Premium Chessgames Member This tournament used the new FIDE time control, approved in Turin: start with 90 minutes, get an extra 30 minutes at time control, and add 30 second increments per move throughout.

Official site (Catalan)

Nov-04-06  artemis: Thank you chessgames and caissanist. I was afraid that after commenting on dominguez's games that I would find out it was a blitz tourney.

That said, I cant believe that they are cheapening chess by speeding it up even more.

Nov-04-06  artemis: my word Timman took a beating here. I clicked on timman wins and thought that there must have been an error.
