1.1

(PB
2000) For a game to be rated each player must have the following minimum
periods in which to complete all the moves, assuming the game lasts 60
moves.

1.11

Where
at least one of the players in the tournament has a rating 2200 or higher,
each player must have a minimum of 120 minutes.

1.12

Where
at least one of the players in the tournament has a rating 1600 or higher,
each player must have a minimum of 90 minutes.

1.13

Where
all the players in the tournament are rated below 1600, each player must
have a minimum of 60 minutes.

1.14

Examples
of ways in which 1.11 can be achieved include:
All
the moves in 2 hours. 40 moves in 75 minutes, followed by all the moves in 15 minutes but each time a player makes a move an extra 30 seconds is added to his clock time. 40 moves in 90 minutes, followed by all he moves in 30 minutes.

1.2

Games
played with all the moves at a rate faster than the above are excluded
from the list.

1.3

Where
a certain number of moves is specified in the first time control, it is
recommended be 40 moves. Players benefit from uniformity here.
