Chess, is an excellent game as long as you be patient enough to wait till the game is over,well many aren’t.Thus chess is clearly not for people who are not enthusiastic enough. Chess played with white pieces and black ones (a much known fact!)is played on a square checkered board,which is the chessboard, with sixty four square arranged in an eight-by-eight grid.
As an interesting fact the longest chessgame lasted for five days!!! Just imagine! Thus was invented the chess clock. Chess clocks usually ensure that a game does not go on forever. Although it might be a little difficult to understand or handle achess clock, (sometimes even professionals are baffled by it!) it is a must have for the proper completion a normal chess game. These Chess clocks again, need some amount of understanding. First up, is to know about some chess clock related chess terms like; increment, flag, 40\2,Bronstein, time-delay, analog, etc.
Increment: it is a time setting, which, adds to your time that remains after you have made your move. One of the most popular time settings was the recent FIDE’s G\90+30, which meant completion of the game in 90 minutes with a 30 minutes increment after every move.
Bronstein:It is quite similar to time-delay except adds back the time after the clock is hit instead of initially waiting for it. Though it proves to be pretty confusing at times!
Delay: is the amount of time for which the clock will freeze for before beginning the countdown.
No matter how long a game may last, playing chess, is always a pleasurable experience, just make sure you don’t grow old finishing just one game!
