Online Slow play policy

  • We expect that matches of 20 boards will not take longer than 170 minutes. This is based on 8 minutes per board plus 10 minutes for discussion of card, hospitality breaks etc. Teams may have a second match starting 3 hours after the first, so matches must be completed in a timely manner.
  • For 16 board rounds in the playoffs, 140 minutes is the time limit.
  • If the last board is not started prior to 170 minutes after the start time of the match (or 140 minutes), this should be reported to the co-ordinator. The tournament committee will review the match and penalties may be assigned.
