Re: New article by Wim van Vugt analyzing time limits, tournament length and DMD issues

There was one thing that was not discussed in that article

What is the maximal time that most correspondence players practically use.

I am a player who usually use most of his time and I had a game when I used full 300 days for 50 moves(no DMD and I simply had an endgame when I had to find correct moves to save a draw).

The point is that based on what I heard from a friend and based on analysis of finished games in one tournament(including games of more than 60 moves) my impression is that most players who play in the server never use more than 35 days per 10 moves and if it is correct it is certainly possible to make tournaments for these players in time control of 35 days per 10 moves.

I think that it may be interesting to calculate for every player the maximal time that can be used when he does not need to change his time management not to lose on time in the relevant tournament.
