Starter clock. How much time is allowed?

Is there a smart cookie out there who can tell me exactly how the system decides how much time to allocate to the blue starter clock?

I think it’s 3 days for corr… can’t recall currently what it is for live / blitz

I’m sure it’s not that simple but before I go laborious on the beta site I thought I would try my luck here.

I say ’ sure’ because my Fast C. tournament games don’t give that long on the blue clock. Only 24hrs which is the same as the ‘initial’ time given.

fascinating… my only recent data sample is a tournament with 1 week initial time and 2 days/move fischer… they all started with 3 days to make the first move… you’ll need someone with smarter cookies than me to answer your question it seems :slight_smile:
