    i am not sure that it is best. but i certainly think it worth a trial.

    in personal and clan games those 80 move marathons are wonderful, and even the last moves need great consideration to give the best game.

    but in a tournament - who cares who wins, just finish the damn thing! lots of people are waiting. you can bet dantes wont require 80 moves to assert dominance over the rest of us.

    i think it worth experimenting with the timebank and see how far it can be cut back without timeouts dominating. maybe even 21 day would work.

    i think this would be great!
    12 hour timeout and 28 day timebank
    and call it the "twice a day tournament"

    I think this is a great idea - I fully support it and it was a key driver for implementing the timebank feature.

    Rest assured that I am hoping to get this going as soon as possible.
