Originally posted by gsunnen Late two nights ago I entered three tournaments. Now I have 51 games scheduled.
I haven't made any moves in one of the tournaments. Can I withdraw?
I've been there, I've done that.
Last summer, I entered two tournaments, and found myself suddenly in a third tournament round 2 when I already had enough games to play. I bit in the sour apple and played. Some won, some loss, but averall, my rating took a dip.
Just take on the games and learn from a good experience. Don't ever play more games than you really want, and that is done by not enter new tournaments lightly. Have always room for an accidentally progression to a round 2.
Just remember that you don't always have to have 0 games waiting when you leave the site. Play a few moves, go do something else. Come back a few hours later, make a move on an older game..
This is how i do it now, and I've improved greatly.. no longer do I try to make a move in every game waiting at each sitting
