HOURGLASS CHESS

CalebChessGeek

Hello to all! So I’m gonna be in a tournament, and if there is a tie, they play hourglass chess. Basically, 2 full minutes in play, each player has

1:00 | 1:00

every time you move, instead of just disappearing, it adds to the other persons clock! E.g. Took 12 seconds for white to move:

0:48 | 1:12

Could you PLEASE make this a feature on chess.com with a 

1 min per side

3 min per side

5 min per side

and 10 min per side?

 

THANKS!!!!

 

(if you think this is a good idea, comment below!)

Actually it might not because it would mean that of the opponent takes his time so as not to risk blundering them the time trouble disappears. Flagging would be basically impossible
