I think both of us played very quickly for a standard play game, and it was all over in less than an hour.
I've always played too quickly, but there's one other player in the local league who's even worse than me in this respect; when we played each other, a draw was agreed after 32 moves... and 31 minutes. I'd used 21 of those to my opponent's 10 - and since the time control was at move 30, he finished the game with more time than he started it. None of the other games was out of the opening by the time we'd finished.
