Why do we always use chess clocks? Doesn’t it make it harder for the kids to focus on the game? Using chess clocks actually helps players stay focused on the game better! Playing with clocks ensures the game does not last to long, keeps kids focused so they do not run out of time, and teaches them to make quick decisions. And remember, black always starts white’s clock!
