And if you ever wanted to see what a 215 move blitz game looks like, here it is ...
That's <1.5 sec per move. I doubt that I am physically fast enough for that.

The strangest thing is that 212...Qd7 is actually a major blunder (the queen should go to the a or b files where it can get in a further check behind the white king) and White could have won quickly by 213.Re5 threatening Bg6 (if 213...Qc6 then 214.Be4! then Bg6!)

But after 214.Kg6?? Qd7 there was nothing White could do to avoid the draw. Every move that does not allow the stalemate allows a perpetual check instead.

What an incredible game. I assume that they had increments?

They are playing 4 minutes plus 2 secs per move. With almost every club in Australia now converted to DGTs we should be doing this also rather than play 5 minute chess with no increments! :hmm:

Does that work out to about 11 minutes per side for the game?

Kevin Bonham

Does that work out to about 11 minutes per side for the game?

Yes, if they use up all their time. Or about three seconds per move!

Oh, I thought they were playing 5 minute.

I agree.

I agree.

I prefer 2 minute + 12 second increment

3 2 would be the equivalant fischer mode time control to the flat 5 0
