    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?

    Thanks!

    If they've been closed to new entrants, or already started, nope. If they're still open to new entrants, yep.

    Serves you right for being greedy, I hope your rating suffers a terrible slump

    Why worry?

    You have plenty of time to play the games.

    Next time you enter a tourney look at how big the groups are going to be as this will tell you how many games you will get when the tournament starts.

    Groups of 4 = 6 games
    Groups of 8 = 14 games
    Groups of 16 = 30 games
    Group of 32 = 62 games

    Now stop being a wuss and play your games.

    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
