lol I'm swamped too even without having signed up for the june hardcores.
I couldn't even say why I have so many games going on, all I know is that my timebank is running in most of them, but I'm in the middle of exam time so I don't really find the time to move.
Anybody else have this reflex that when the see "enter tournament", they just can't resist clicking it? I have about 5 tourneys on the go, some only with 2 games, others with about 10 games in progres... and some clan challenges too 🙁
Originally posted by Exy Well, I clear my moves everyday if I can and I'm coming back next day to find 120 games waiting! 🙄
WOW.. my wife would divorce me I think for spending too much time on the site.. I try to take my time playing the games, but I end up hurrying through when I get over 50+ games, and start losing games to people with lower ratings..
How do you find the time and with your rating that high too?! Tips Tips!
I make full use of the time bank and try to make at least one move in each game every day. I know the time bank for the games I play on the whole would allow me 3 days away from the site if I really couldn't find the time to play.

I move every day in most of my games (sometimes I get a bit behind for a few days) but I spend a lot of weekends away from the computer. This means anything short of 3/0 isn't an option and to be honest 3/0 (long weekends other delays) is a bit dicey.
(Who knows why I'm playing on a 1/7 siege board)
I usually have between 40 and 60 games waiting. It is very rare that I manage to get it close to zero. Getting it below 30 each day is closer to the norm. Despite this I seldom have time problems.
Given the time available for playing, I play games in the following order:
1) Games that have passed their T/O, where the T/B is currently eroding. (ie rotating clock)
2) Games that will pass their T/O in the next 24 hours.
3) Games (1) and (2) that receive replies while online and when the position is still fresh in mind.
4) Games that are most outstanding (ie same as clicking the games waiting link)
It helps to use the Firefox browser tab feature. That way you can scan your games list and open up tabs in the background, each with a game in progress and in your order of priority, and then you can navigate the tabs and close them down as you play each move. This also saves considerable time between moves. I can really recommend using tabs to manage your games on RHP. Having enjoyed Firefox for some time, going back to IE would be like chopping off a couple of limbs.
