Not sure what you meant by "standard" ?

If you mean training games, I would think anything less than G/30 with delay is inefficient in terms of  improving one's ability play serious games.

G/15 is still quick in my opinion.

More time on hand per move is more time to

- practice clean analysis till quiescence

- As a result of the above, is a way to minimize tactical oversights

- burn on-the-board patterns into your skull ( we tend to remember critical positions better if we've been staring at them for a while!)

"Standard" is fifteen minutes and longer.

On chess.com :

bullet = less than 3 minutes

blitz = 3-14

standard = 15 +

How does the increment affect things? I've played several 10|10 games, which have affected my standard rating, rather than blitz

Approximately, take into account base time + 60 times the increment but it might not be exactly correct.

I have found that 8 8 is considered blitz but 10 10 is considered standard.

So 1-0 is bullet?

>60min long.

>10min rapid.

>3min blitz.

=<3min bullet.

<1min stupid.
