    Actually, I was wrong anyway EmbarassedLaughing.  I've corrected it now. I was kind of hoping that the comments would be more about the excellent result for Bobby Cheng... Cool

    Pyrta you're wrong, the increment is added after 30 moves.

    So, why didnt you say "11 moves in 90 min with a 30 sec increment"? It would be the same. After 11 moves are completed you have whatever time have left plus 30 sec increment. There must be some additional time after 30 moves.

    Aha, I understand now. So no increment till 30. OK.

    @ MSC157 - that's it. After 30 moves are completed you have whatever time you have left plus 30 seconds increment per move

    I don't understand this:

    "The time control was 30 moves in 90 minutes with a 30 second increment."

    And then?
