I loose my 15-10 game because I was using too much time to play a move !!!

    Perhaps the reason behind this is as for every 1 person who takes a long time, there are 1000 who are letting their clock tick down, chess,com listens to the 1000s not the 1s.

    Perhaps they should do what is right, not what is more popular.

    What a novel idea!

    Oh, wait, no it is not. Well, maybe in today's day and age it is.

    Of course you can use more than 4 minutes in a 15-10 game. That would probably happen in every game. Every game has its easy and difficult moves. You have probably lost connection while you were not moving and therefore not realized that you have lost the connection.

    I had an equal position !! Why not in that case doing a check on the position with a quick computing and if yes, I mean if yes the position is lost, then the player lost the game! it's really non acceptable !

    Chess.com make abusive decision ! Without to check reality! Even I recognize 99% of the time morons have bad attitude like this! That the system sanction them NOT ME ! clear ?

    Calm down.

    Do you have a link to the game in question? The site keeps track of the time each player uses on each move.

    I agree with the original poster. If they want a maximum time per move as well as time and increment, it should all be on the clock.

    So if there is a 4 minute maximum per move this should tick down on its separate clock.

    That is not always true.

        The thing which is popular is right , but the thing that is not popular is not necessarilly wrong.Great example is the Berlin.Just an unpopular sideline before the match Kasparov-Kramnik.Popular main line after the match.The same happened with Italian that was ralely employed before the rise of popularity of Berlin and became one of the main "anti-Berlin lines" after.Popularity constantly changes and it certainly doesn't define what is wrong and what is right.

    A couple of hundred years ago slavery was popular.  That didn't make it right.

    I have a quick question is the 15|10 play style what in real life standard chess goes by? Like just a regular chess match with someone would be 15|10? Or would it be just 15 minutes for each side because adding 10 seconds would be weird?

  • #34

    There are otb tnmts with that time control, but the standard is about 40/120. That is, 40 moves in 2 hrs.

    LOL think and move faster

    So like if I was to participate in a chess club, I should expect that during a match?

    Most chess clubs meet at night during the week. Because the 40/2 game can take up to six hours, it's not ideal for club chess. Serious club USCF rated matches are more often something like g/90 with a 5 second delay or increment. The online equivalent is the 45/45 league.
