Jul-30-04  ughaibu: Was this at a sensible time system?
Premium Chessgames Member
  cu8sfan: <ughaibu> Those were standard games. According to ICC: Start with 120 minutes. Add 60 minutes after 40 moves. Add 30 minutes after move 60.
Jul-31-04  acirce: Those are the best time controls. But when I play a game of almost 7 hours I usually prefer a short draw the day after..
