Suppose the tournament organiser has full five days for an eight round tournament. Assume the main thinking as 90 minutes for a player. Which schedule you would prefer (games in a day): 2, 1, 2, 1, 2 or 2, 2, 0, 2, 2?

P.S. I don't know, if it would be more appropriate to post this in tournaments or club leaders.

Online playing schedule: Every tenth February 29th from 20:00-20:01 (if time permits)
I five days I would much prefer ten games. But the choice between the two options you offer would depend on location. If it were somewhere I had not been before and there was something to see then I would prefer the middle day off. If there were nothing much to see then the other schedule would be preferable and I would stay around and play pickup games on the afternoons off.

Still officially AGA 5d but I play so irregularly these days that I am probably only 3d or 4d over the board (but hopefully still 5d in terms of knowledge, theory and the ability to contribute).

I'd prefer 1,2,2,2,1, start late on the first day, finish early on the last day. Otherwise, from your options I'd prefer the day off in the middle.

The London Open is similar to Herman's suggestion: it is over 4 days, 7 rounds with 90 mins each. On the first day it starts after lunch but has 2 games (so a late finish), a morning and afternoon game on the two middle days, and then on the last day only a morning game. That makes travel easier (if it's doable in a half day). If this was a tournament in Finland that I was going to from the UK then I would likely not be able to get there in a morning but travel the day (or two) before in which case I'd prefer a 2 2 0 2 2 schedule to have a rest/sightseeing day.

With Full five days I meant that there is time to play two rounds on the first and last day. Of course if the time is short you option is a choice. Anyway full five days would likely be from Monday to Friday rather than over extended weekend.

So 2,2,0,2,2 seems preferable. However 2,1,2,1,2 might allow a bit longer thinking time like 120 minutes.

Anaway I don't currently have any real plans for that kind of tournament.
