  • ABOUT
  • 90m30s.org is the club for players at ICC who would like to practice and feel the atmosphere of the Classical 90m+30s time control chess game.
  • We are affiliated with TEAM 45 45 team4545league.org (who also use ICC)
  • We will regularly organize an Individual Open Swiss system tournament, during the period of intermission (6 weeks) between the end of Rd-6 of the current Team 4545 season and the beginning of Rd-1 of the next Team 4545 season.
  • TOURNAMENT RULES
  • Date/ Time to play in each Round is : by negotiation between the two players (similar to Team 4545). ICC messaging is used for this.
  • The Tourney will be 4 rounds, with a time span of 2 weeks for each Round, so you will have 14 days to negotiate the date/time and play the game with your opponent in any particular Round.
  • Depending on the number of participants, we might have 1 Section only, or divide it into 2 Sections (or possible 3 Sections) based on Rating Category.
  • Considering that Aug 23rd will be the end date of Round-6 of the current season (T93) and Oct 11th will be the start date of Rd-1 of next season (T94),
    The 1st Tourney of 90m+30s will start on Aug 23rd and will end at Oct 17.

  • PLAYING THE 90 30 CHESS GAME
  • In a Classical 90m+30s chess game, both players start with 90 minutes each at the beginning of the chess game, and then, each time a player moves, that player gets an additional 30 seconds added on to their time (this is called an 'increment')
  • Note : In 90m+30s time control game, you must be ready to allocate 4 hours of time, assuming that both players use almost all their time, plus 30s increment.
