Debatable blitz rule

Post by Jack Lad » Sat Jan 11, 2020 9:54 am

Should the rules be revised or perhaps the use of time increments of say 12 secs be used to ensure that people cannot win on time simply by moving their pieces around quickly? :?

I once had a drawn R+B v R endgame which was simply lost on time. I agree that time is part of the game but aiming to simply win on time is against the ethos of chess.
