Bobby Fischer was of the opinion that faster time controls limited creativity. While time is limited, we tend to agree; our best games are when we take the time to reason through the position. One hour we feel is the best compromise between game play and limits on our available time, so we offer our busy executives a one day tournament in three rounds with adequate time for excellent game play.
