Chess Clocks in Tournaments?


You can download free chess clock apps on your smartphone.

The clock app is the most popular, is free, and works great.

"Fischer" timing is what Bob is taking about above. 5 | 5 means 5 minutes total and then 5 seconds are added after each player's move. That's a common time for causal blitz-style games.

This is too quick for pool, but it's easy enough in the app to increase either of these values. 5 | 30 might be a good starting point for more casual games.
