    I just noticed one of my opponents is playing 162 games currently. I wonder if that's some sort of record here.

    I have trouble playing my limit of six games.

    I think I have once played one who was playing 900 games on the same time. The time per move was 21 days.

    If you think 162 games is a lot. Consider this, Veca has averaged 608.63 moves a day this month (And he is rated 1800+!).

    Honus has averaged 290 moves a day for more than 7 years.

    He's up to 247 games now.
    1,930? Good grief.

    That's better than one move a minute for 10 straight hours. Damn.

    Believe it or not there are players here, for reasons best known only to themselves, who choose to play a ridiculous amount of games concurrently.
    It can only have an adverse effect on their ratings as well as severely limiting their other leisure activities!
