On deciding a chess match (Armageddon)

Post by Look » Wed Jul 21, 2021 8:09 am


I saw some chat on a chess site about Armageddon games. As some chess people pointed out , Armageddon is not the right way to go. IMHO playing a pair of blitz games and waiting for victory for one side is better than a single one game (Armageddon). This actually happens in football(soccer) penalty shootouts. Also in volleyball when the score is 25-25.
