How long does a 15|10 Tournament(5 Rounds) usually lasts?
15/10 game usually can last about 25 minutes. 5 rounds can last about slighty over than 2 hours. You might want to make it 2 hours 30 minutes.
About 35 minutes a round is more realistic. a 5 round 15 / 0 tournament is about 3 hours long.
Let's say that at the end of a 40-moves long game (the longest per round), both players have about 3 minutes.
24min + 80×10sec (800sec = 13min) = 37min.
37min × 5 = 185min = 3h 5min
Seriously, 3 hours? I have never played one that long. Anyway, 3 hours for 5 rounds should be safe.
Thank you all.
plus 10-15 min time interval after each game for the pairings and board placements.
