We will discuss rules 5A through 5E which cover time controls, specifically understanding what they mean and terms such as sudden death, multiple time periods, increment and delay. We'll also be discussing which time controls can be used to run tournaments and what rating system is used to rate those games. For folks tuning in live, Twitch will provide some interaction between the show and the audience, allowing you to ask questions in real-time and we’ll also finish each episode with some light-hearted fun in the form of trivia based on the topic discussed.
