<<<Rate of play G-3'+2">>>
Arbiter: IA Andrzej Filipowicz>
TC for the blitz tourney.
|Feb-26-09|| ||notyetagm: Anyone know if the TC <G-3'+2"> is a 2-second delay or a 2-second increment?|
|Feb-26-09|| ||laskersteinitz: FIDE uses increments; time-delay is an American invention.|
|Feb-27-09|| ||notyetagm: <laskersteinitz: FIDE uses increments; time-delay is an American invention.>|
Thanks. Did not know that.
|Feb-28-09|| ||chessmoron: Can somebody have a PGN for Zhou, Jianchao-Sergey Karjakin 1-0?|
|Feb-28-09|| ||volvak: Zhou - Karjakin was 0.5-1.5
|Mar-01-09|| ||laserlight: <laskersteinitz: FIDE uses increments; time-delay is an American invention.>|
I had the impression that the time delay control was attributed to Bronstein.
|Mar-01-09|| ||WhiteRook48: Bacrot at the top!|
|Mar-02-09|| ||laskersteinitz: <laserlight> Ah, you're right. I got confused. I thought Fischer had invented time delay and Bronstein increments, but it's the other way around!|
Delay is used in the US, whereas increment is more common in Europe.
|Mar-02-09|| ||laskersteinitz: Now that the event is over, CG.com could update the piece of text on the left side of the home page.|
|Mar-10-20|| ||Tabanus: 11 years with wrong Filippov in 12th place, should be Anton F.|
