A Quick Chess event is for a person who wishes to play many games in one day and not have the results affect his regular rating. The time controls in a Quick Chess tournament are designed to be a single time control of more than 10 to fewer than 30 total playing minutes per player, one second delay or increment counting as one minute playing time. 10 < mm + ss < 30. Sudden-death rules are used in Quick Chess events, except score keeping is not required.
