    Keep your self occupied with clan games and stay away from the tournament page.

    Set up rules and obay them.

    I, as an example, have one banded 8 group torunament going. I don't enter one more until half of the old games is finished.
    I have also two 4 group tournaments going. I don't start a new one until half of theese games are finished.
    I have four clan games going. I hope my clan leader put me into too many at the same time.
    And I have 6 games where I have been challanged or challanged another, no more.
    That makes around 50 games at maximum but for the most of the time around 20 to 30.

    If I didn't have this rule, I would started every new tournament there is. I'm about to be a chessoholic.

    By the way - who has the most games concurrently going for now?
    I saw someone once having 380 games going, but I don't remember who.

    That would be cordeiro2 I think. I looked through his profile as I was a having a game with him. He is in 3 clans and has his own clan too. Seriously, I wouldn't be able cope with that many games.

    Can you please explain a cheeky git. That one has not quite reached the West yet and I am sure we have more than our fair share. I want to be sure to use the Phrase properly. When you insult someone these days you have to be sure to be politically correct or else you might fall victom to a wanker party.

    Git
    1. A completely ignorant, childish person with no manners.
    2. A person who feels justified in their callow behaviour.
    3. A pubescent kid who thinks it's totally cool to act like a moron on the internet, only because no one can actually reach through the screen and punch their lights out.

    eg. "That n00b is behaving like a bloody git".
