    Impossible to predict that unless some fool looks through every profile, copy the G.I.P and averaging them.

    I would hope it doesn't exceed 50 games for subscriber average. Heck, 20 is probably much.

    On second look, maybe he is trying to memorize or recognize opening repertiores...maybe practicing tactics.

    But if that's the case blitz would be better. As long as he enjoys it.

    I don`t know about for you guys, but if I play more than ten games my performance starts dropping so I keep it around 10-15.

    I am playing some people in tournaments and they are playing more than 100 games, and have totally forgotten about the game, let alone what moves they were going to make!

    Depends on if you are asking about the mean, median or the mode.....not to mention any of the other methods for producing an average.

    It does kind of boggle me how some folks have upwards of 50 or 100 games afloat.
    But then, I was never too good at juggling - let alone doing it whilst I play chess.

    I have about 10 games with heng and most of them are dormant, just sitting there with the clock ticking down. We'll see what happens.

    The median would be the best "average." Half of the players play more, half pay less. An arithemetic "mean average" wouldn't give as much information because the extremes would drag the average number in that direction.

    Actually, I went and counted and I have 18 of those games with heng, and they are almost all sitting stale most of the time.

    I would personally prefer an absolute maximum of 30 games. Although I have definitely gone over.

    Absolutely. RHP allows you to have your maximum number. You set it and you don't go over. What a nice feature!

    but he moves just before his time runs out.

    I wonder how long he can keep that up as a backlog builds.
