Japanese Timing

    Keywords: Tournament

Definition

Japanese Timing is the time system where

  • one gets a number of time periods of same size (e.g. 480 one-minute periods),
  • time used for each move only deducts as many periods as fit into this time (possibly none),
  • and counting seconds is done when one's number of periods is equal or less than a certain number (typically 10).

In other words,

  • fractions of a period don't matter.

Diagram

|---|---|---|---|  periods before
|--- --- ---|        time for one move
        |---|---|  periods after

Remarks

It's quite flexible. It can be used to manage main time

overtime

  • Main time followed by "byoyomi" in amateur tournaments

or even both

If used with only one period, it is (besides counting seconds) equal to Canadian Timing with only one stone per period (academic).

This system is spilling.


Example

30 one-minute periods.

  #    Time     Used
  ------------------
  1    30:00    0:40
  2    30:00    3:30
  3    27:00    9:10
  4    18:00   15:20
  5     3:00    0:55
  6     3:00    1:05
  7     2:00    2:00
  8     0:00    lost
