    If you stop this madness you have to stop every other kind of madness, then you stop everything.

    I don't normally drink, and when I drink, I don't drink normally.

    I once knew a man called Norm. He wasn't THE norm, he was just Norm.

    One of my opponents was playing 162 games and I mentioned it in a previous post. Now he has upped it to 1,134 games. When we started our game, he was the same rating as me. Now after losing 27 (in 156 games) by timeout, he has dropped almost 200 points.

    Doesn't seem right.

    But then I thought it's his life, he can do what he wants. He obviously enjoys playing. Besides, maybe he's wheelchair-bound. It could be all he has to do. But that shouldn't matter anyway. He can do what he wants and doesn't need to answer to me or anyone else.

    Cat can play 10,000 games standing on his head whistling the national anthem as far as I'm concerned. (don't try this at home, it takes years of practice).

    Hello!

    I think it's O.K. if you want to play more than 300 games at the same time, but we are forgetting something: the Quality of the games.

    Those persons playing a lot of games, they also have a high amount of lost games.
    I could give an approximation: more than 25%, probably near 30%.

    The person that chooses to play a huge amount of games is becoming a target for the players that want to get some points taking advantage
    of the lack of time or the poor analysis of the adversary.

    I hope you have a good day.

    I am playing someone with 1,100+ games. If I were playing just to get points, that would work against me. When I took his open invite, he had 162 games. He has lost 31 by timeout so far and his rating has dropped 200 points. So, I'm not taking advantage of poor analysis. In fact, just the opposite.

    Fortunately, I'm not here for rating points. I'm just having fun playing the game I enjoy.

    If he wants to play a million games, that's his choice.
