This has always struck me as strange.
Most of the time it doesn't matter too much as usually White moves fairly quickly after the game starts but this is not always the case.
E.g when a Tournament starts and a player happens to be on vacation. I'm experiencing this with one opponent at the moment.
I see no reason why vacation shouldn't ...[text shortened]... trange that White's clock doesn't start as soon as the tournament is officially opened.

This is my game (not) in progress at the mo...
As you can see it still says White has 7 days to move.
Now ... it's only 4 days or so since the tournament started so if he doesn't want to move until that's fair enough even if he's not on vacation.
But is the clock going even if it still is on the original 7 days start time?
