Thirty years ago a picture hung in the Sydney Chess Centre.  It showed two chess players—one looking bored, the other indecisive.  He had picked up a pawn to make his first move but had taken so long that a spider web extended from his hand to the chessboard.

With the advent of chess clocks, timed games are no longer contentious—at least, not over the board—but clock time is only one aspect of time in chess.

A couple of years ago I wrote a piece about Time for the Rooty Hill Chess Club web page.  You can play through the games there by moving the pieces on Chess Genie.
