How to set time

Postby RaulAlonso » 27 May 2020, 06:58

In Winboard if I set a time control to 40 moves in 10 minutes in the last minute or so the program will add another 10 minutes to both sides. How do I set it so it will stop at 10 minutes? Thanks

Indeed, that is what 40 moves/10 min means: 10 min for the first 40 moves, then 10 more minutes (+ any leftover time) for the next 40, etc.

If you don't want that, but want 10 min for the whole game ('sudden death'), you have to tick 'incremental' in the TC dialog, give 10 min as base time, and an increment of 0.
