I am guessing there would have been 3.5 hours of actual chess playing stretched over the 8.5 hours of time originally allocated I would hope that kept to time table. But thanks to all volunteers of course.

I am guessing there would have been 3.5 hours of actual chess playing ....Try actually looking at the time control before making clueless guesses as by your figure that would mean each round lasted on average a mere 30 minutes.
In actuality most rounds lasted around an hour, some longer.

Your are correct of course, I have not played on a clock for about 20 years so ...
