Shad0w, do you have information about the following?

-Was the time limit finally set at 75 minutes?
-Were there many draws or were players able to finish their games on time?

I'm very interested in these as I'll try to develop some sort of organized play here in Madrid and length of games could be an issue as we are still learning the game.

All matches were 75minutes
Pat - has all the stats i was going to do a work up on them

As long as people try to kill the other player 75min should be fine. If your players are newer give them 90 min

I consider 60 minutes to be a long game at this point unless I'm playing against myself. It takes longer when you're making all of the decisions.

Most were done before the 60min mark

Hey Shadow (or anyone else who knows), any report as to what percentage of matches went to the 75 minute time limit?  I know you said "most" matches finished in under 60 min, but I've also seen reports that a lot of new players were involved in the tournament, and new players tend to play very slow, so...

To my knowledge, there was only one I can think of. I wouldn't say more than three would have gone to time.  A lot of the newer people played pretty quickly.
