Time management during the game of chess is an essential skill for every serious chess player.  Chess Time Management is the process of planning and exercising conscious control during the chess game, especially to increase  efficiency and result.
 
Relatively well known that Emanuel Lasker (1868 - 1941), the 2nd World Chess Champion, took an advantage of opponent's long-time thinking by preparing a speedy reply against his most likely moves.
 
Please note that a chess clock was already used during Emanuel Lasker vs. Jose Raul Capablanca World Championship Match (1921).
 
Nevertheless, the unsurpassed master of Chess Time Management was the 3rd World Chess Champion Jose Raul Capablanca (1888 - 1942), nicknamed the "Human Chess Machine".
 
In this area (managing the chess clock) he has outshined not only Emanuel Lasker, but even the 6th World Chess Champion Mikhail Botvinnik (1911 -1995).
 
At the same time, there are many examples of improper Chess Time Management. For instance, legendary American Chess Grandmaster Samuel "Sammy" Herman  Reshevsky (1911 - 1992) was well known for his long time thinking over non-critical opening moves, and repeatedly found himself under tremendous time trouble.
 
Many time US Chess Champion, Samuel Reshevsky has admitted that "My main problem is the time element ... leaving myself insufficient time for the middlegame."

In chess, after Chess Time Control was introduced, time trouble, clock problem, time pressure, or its German translation Zeitnot, is the condition where a chess player has little time left to complete his remaining moves or the game.
 
Quite 0bvious that the main reason for such time pressure or Zeitnot is Chess Time Mismanagement.  
 
A new direction in Chess Time Management was created by the 8th World Chess Champion Mikhail Tal (1936 -1992),  nicknamed the "Magician from Riga": intimidating stare.
 
He has successfully applied such hypnotic behavior when, after quickly moves made, Tal began staring hard at the opponent. Mikhail Tal once said "I like to grasp the initiative and not give my opponent peace of mind".
 
No luck that Tal has the longest unbeaten streak of 95 tournament games without a loss (46 wins and 49 draws).
 
Please note that, although the chess game is still in the stage of completion of the opening, Tal's clock shows more than a half-hour in front of the opponent's time.
 
Modern chess broadcasting allows us to follow the player's distribution or spreading clock time by each move.
 
Chess Time Management of the current World Chess Campion Grandmaster Magnus Carlsen is just phenomenal.  Not coincidence that he maintains 3 titles in 3 formats in 2014 year: FIDE Classical, Rapid, and Blitz World Chess Championship - the great historical triumph.
 
Therefore, the discipline of chess clock is very important. However, we must not forget that the basis of this process is   Chess Time Control.
