Pausing tournament game

We briefly talked about using vacation and prolonging correspondence games like that. How about pausing the game indefinitely holding up the whole tournament? What do you think about that?

If paused games block a tournament, just call a moderator.


And as a reminder to those who are not aware, pauses are never mandatory. Both players agreed to the time settings, and while it is nice to give your opponent the time to solve an unexpected trouble, if you do not have the time or patience, you can always unpause - even if your opponent paused the game.


Should you be allowed to pause a tournament game? How do tournament players feel about this?
