A few notes on rates of play, particularly for new members who may not be experienced in competitive play.

The notation, for example “G80+10”, refers to the time allowed for each player for the game (“G”): in this example G80+10 means that each player gets 80 minutes to play the game, with an additional 10 seconds (“+10”) every move you make – the clock adds 10 seconds to your available time when you make a move (and press the clock).

There is more about rates of play in our What’s on page, in the General Information section.
