OK, I don't really understand the time controls exactly. Are they Fischer? I presume so. If so, how the heck does someone reel off 52 moves in a Bullet game? I think I saw 1+1 next to the game, minute and one second increment?

While I'm here, what are the time controls in Blitz and Bullet tourneys?

Fischer Though I think the increment gets added as soon as you make a move (and not when the move comes back to you).

Thank you. Yes, I looked at Wiki. Seems a bit clearer now.
