Thank You for Helping make this Chess Tournament Something Special

Setting your Clock for the Increment Time Control

Increment capable clocks are provided by the tournament. Players may substitute their own increment capable clocks only upon agreement of both players. If there are not enough tournament provided clocks and you must use a non-incrment capable clock, set the delay to 30 seconds.

The LEAP 9907S:

has both increment and delay capability. The LEAP 9907 (without the S at the end) can do neither. However, the 9907S has no presets and so all settings must be done manually. There are only 3 buttons on the face. The + and - increment or decement settings. The center button toggles between Play and Settings modes. In play mode it pauses and restarts the clock. Once in settings mode the center button moves to the next digit.

Congratulations. You are done! To use the clock, turn off/on. Press the center button to begin the game and White's increment time will begin.
