Sign up early and sign up often. The knights will bite the heads off the pawns.

Great, then we'll have a bunch of blind pawns running around the chess board running into the other pieces.

It is to bad more people did not show up to play. Where are all the wisconsin chess players.

Alex Betaneli said...

Well, I would have considered playing but the idea of potentially playing for 24 hours (8 hour time control!) simply scares me. This time control is plainly insane.... I had a 9 year old student who once had to play till 5:00am because of this insanity. Even with ONE ROUND PER DAY it's a bad tc, but with three games on Saturday??? No GM event has 8 hour games anymore, why would any WI organizer think that we have more to think about than the elite?

Yes, the time control was a little too long. Perhaps should be 40 moves in 2 hours with SD/1-hour. We need the longer time controls so we can bring back the endgame!!!

Tom said...

I agree with Alex. The potential for 8 hour games is frightening, especially with 3 games on Saturday. I think a sufficiently long time control would be Game in 120 minutes (2 hours), again especially if there are 3 games on one of the days.

Alex Betaneli said...

Tom, I tend to agree. My current favorite time control (if it's more than one game per day) is g/90+30sec/move increment. It adds up to about g/120 but allows for notation and thinking when in time trouble.

The idea of 8 hour time control (not used for a decade outside of WI) has to do with adjourning games and analyzing endgames at home. Major tournaments (at the elite levels) were long, one round per day and free days reserved for the adjourned games. At the NCO it is impossible to "bring back the endgame" for a very simple reason: no matter how much time you got, you are fatigued because you played chess for the whole day. If you want to improve your endings, just study and play practice games. :-)

40/2, SD/1 with TWO games per day is doable as is shown by CCA events. With three round per day though even that is too long. Realistically, g/120 is plenty of time for players of our (non-elite GM) level. Perfectionism is of no value during competition, but is a great quality when one studies!
