Hi everyone,

If this has been asked/posted elsewhere then please forgive me!

What I want to know is what time controls you guys are using for both training and rated games.

Many thanks in advance.

for rated matches, I play with 40/120' for realistic atmoshere and time to analyze properly, in training matches, I play 30' because I don't have so much time for chess but I still want to play.

I like 3/0 for exposing myself to as many opening positions as possible, 2/12 for a quick fix, and 45/5 for serious matches because that's what many real-life tournaments use.
