    Our man is putting in a massive effort (>700 moves in less than 18 hours), but his rating has slipped a little. The question on everyone's lips is: How many vacation days does he have left?

    My bet for the mass skulling: May 17

    He must be getting near hengs record number of games now.

    Yeah, Heng had 1600+ games, but I'm sure he didn't go over 1700, so Atri will be higher for sure if he goes over 1700 games.

    Not much move activity recently, but our hero has taken on an extra 30 games, like a desperate gambler who keeps making bigger and bigger bets to try to cover his rapidly mounting losses. Once the new hardcore tournaments start, atri will have well in excess of 1700 games and will therefore, according to the posts in this thread, set a new record for the site.

    heng, by the way, has cut back to a relatively slim 293 games in progress.

    Not much happening at the moment, though games in progress continues to creep up toward the magic 1700 mark. Is he aiming for 2000? Will the chess gods strike him down for daring to reach too high? Only time will tell.

    He's signed up for 6 unstarted tournaments, 7143 7161 7190 7193 7195 7196.
    If they all start at once he'll gain another 198 games.
    I think we have a new star!
