Benefits of Using Analog Chess Clocks
If you’ve watched a professional game of chess or even a school chess tournament, then you’ve likely seen a chess clock without realizing it. Chess clocks are double clocks that are usually set next to the boards on a chess table. Chess clocks, also known as a chess timer, are used to keep track of the time that each chess player spends on their particular chess move. Chess clocks can be used to make sure that neither player is taking too long during the game or they can be used for time-based play, such as speed and blitz games.
In standard tournament play, there will typically be limits to the amount of time that each player is allowed to spend during their move; if they overreach this time, they may face a penalty or even disqualification. For players who want to up their chess game, chess clocks can also be used to play fast games with time crunches, such as blitz or speed games, where each player must make a specified number of moves within a pre-designated period of time.
