    The last 1 day timeout (and it had a 21 days t/b...) tournament was started in the first days of August. Tournament 1275

    Since then about 200 tournaments started and no one faster than some rare 3/7 tournaments.

    Where are the tournaments for us fast players?
    Why only turtleish time controls?

    Some 1 day t/o series or even some "timebank only" would be appreciated.

    What do you guess it's the purpose this thread?

    There were some Ultraspeed (1/0) tourneys before that. Don't think that particular format was great due to the amount of skulls taken.

    Casually I just came across the vote about tournaments time controls cast in July. http://www.timeforchess.com/vote/vote.php?voteid=11

    So far the result is that 3/7 is clearly the most preferred time control, followed , pretty far, by 1/7 and 7/7.

    Now, if this is vox populi, why on Earth the vast majority of tournaments created are with 7/14 time controls ??

    a few 1/7 tournaments would be nice.

    Sending feedback would get some fast ones set up. I don't think Russ and Chris come in here very often.

    I like fast tournaments but dislike Ultraspeeds 1/0. No time to relax. Much better is 0/14, 0/21 etc. because it offers speed plus flexibility.
