    160+ games in progress & 1014 moves so far this month.
    I think we will soon have a new master.
    I'm betting he's #1 by July.

    he has already completed far more many games than weyerstrass and akizy, why would you assume he'd get a higher rank if he plays more?

    Look at his graph User 51824 then imagine a line going from the first game on the current page of the graph to the most recent win.

    it seems like a pretty straight line to me?

    But I noticed from the player tables how the gap between the No1 and No.2 and Seadevil has been closing for a while, so I guess you may be right.

    I doubt he'll ever dethrone Weyerstrass, but we'll see how these games turn out.

    Game 2580858
    Game 3172670
    Game 3172672
    Game 2580863

    75 moves in 1 day & hasn't moved in 12 1/2 hours!
    How does he do it?

    Assuming he lives in the UK (Wales), he must have made 75 moves between 00:01 & 02:00 this morning.
    That's a move every 90 seconds & many of his games are against 1800+ players.

    Many games doesn't imply more rating points. If so, then Heng would be #1.

    Only one lost game and he lose a lot of rating points.

    Exactly.
    Blitzing games like he has done does seem a rather reckless way for the #3 rated player on this site to behave.
    Still, he has only lost 1.58% (16 out of 1007) of his games here so who am I to say?

    in a little more than a month, Akizy will be excluded from the player tables, so he will be #2

    that doesn't mean he has to decide on those moves in just two hours. he may be "storing" analysis when he has time, and making the moves in such a way that when he again "stores" analysis next time, he will not have to analyse all of his games at once, but only some of them. I'm not sure this is clear. bad english.

    I should think that mgbal has a decent chance, he's ranked 2383 now and only about 50 behind seadevil, should be interesting.
