I want to encourage more games to be played with "thinking" chess instead of "video game" chess like in lightning and blitz. When I play at super fast time controls, I tend to stop calculating at all and just push wood. So my chess thought process becomes very sloppy, which makes those fast time control games pretty much useless to me in terms of improving my level.
What if there was a clock mode where a minimum time was required to be spent by a player on a move like say 10 seconds and if this rule were violated then the game would be forfeited?
I know that time delay and increment already exist, but I find there is too much temptation to gain time on the clock and move quickly.
I guess what I want is to find a clock mode that doesn't tempt me to turn off my calculating brain but where the games finish reasonably quickly.
Any thoughts on this idea?
