Fall tournaments - time limits too low?
Posted: Oct 18, 2005, 2:16 PM

I've heard a couple of comments from players through email that they are not signing up for the fall tournaments because the time limits are too short, and that they have heard others saying the same thing.

I want as many players as possible to join the tournaments, and if we need to increase time limits I am open to that.

If you are not currently signed up but would sign up if the time limits were raised to 20/5, please email me or post here. Also, if you ARE signed up and don't want to play in the tournament if the time limits are raised do the same thing.

Either way do it soon because the tournaments start in less than a week

Ok, I've updated the time limits for both Fall tournaments to 20 minutes initial time with 5 second incremental time added per move.

Since no one other than 7 is replying I am assuming those who have signed up are ok with this. Hopefully some more players will sign up for the tournaments this weekend!

Alright!

Now I can play. Super!

10 min was just too low for me as i am a slow player. Of course many games would not take me 10 min to play but those are ones that don't push me to think. Certain moves in awkward situations are tough to see, and force me to spend considerable time looking at them. One or 2 of those in a 10 min game, and I am doomed to time out. 10 min is only adequate for all you speed freaks. }8

I have slow brain syndrome.

I like the change also -- especially for the first ever D-Pente tourney!
