    Let me begin by saying that I too doubt that anyone could humanly possible play 1600 games; there's just not enough time in the day. I also feel that the time limits are there for a reason; if players want to use it all, they should be allowed to without detraction. Perhaps the site guys just need to offer more fast tourneys.

    In any case, I vote to let heng try to surf that wave as long as he can; he has proven to be a good site member thus far. If he stumbles, he will crater like many others have done before; game over, wins for everybody. One way or another, he will receive his reward, and as long as he is not failing to meet his commitments repeatedly, should be allowed to handle his own business. In my limited experience he has been a good opponent, in skill and in friendliness; let the man make his own journey.

    I just claimed my first two wins against Heng by timeout, looks like the vacation flag is not up, and the skulls i assume will be clicked any time soon! he is still at 1539 rating boys and girls, i dont get much for my two wins, but you know, it all adds up in the end! Sicilian, that means like at least 20 points for you coming lol!!! Happying Skulling!

    Thanks for the heads-up. I just claimed the games and got 35 points. Much needed points with the way I'm playing, at that.

    Sweets is probably a better term to use, even for Americans. Candy doesn't seem to be a big problem here. It's more like ice cream and cake type things. And Mountain Dew.

    Stupid kids. 😠

    buddy, this is the way how email chess goes.

    Open this page: User 332714 and hit the F5 button for a live view of the rating drop... 😉

    Currently: Rating down to under a 1000, but still 1500+ games in progress... Where will the free fall end?

    Sorry Heng but this IS a cool one to bet on 😀😀😀
    No I don't hate you for taking on so many games. People who whine about you not moving should shut up and time you out as soon as they get the chance, and then go on leading their ugly lives of misery and dispair.

    Oh and Heng, when you feel like playing a lot again when your big heap of games is gone I suggest you try to calculate how many moves you would like to make each day, and then take on no more than 1,5 times that number in games progressing. In that way you'll be able to move around one move per match per day, which I think is pretty quick. I hope you still like the game after your 1500 games have gone lost through timeouts. Cheers!

    If I were heng, I would ask the GM to reset the rating to p1200.
