Chess Clock Terminology
Most tournaments and organized events now require a chess timer capable of "delay" timing. A set amount of time, usually 5 seconds is added before a player's move. The benefit is that when a player is almost running out of time and in danger of losing based on time expiration, the 5 seconds always ensures at least a minimum amount of time available.
Bonus time is similar to delay but it increase a player's time. With Bonus time a player can gain extra time by playing faster than the bonus time provided.
