59 ( +1 | -1 ) Number of active gamesHey everyone, I was just wondering...how many active games should i have? Is quality better than quantity... Recently and in the past, i have always stuck with the max number of games i could play....20. Just yesterday...i saw a post that got my thinking Quality or quantity... I wish to have an amount of games where i can analize and really have time to think about the moves before submitting, improving myself
does 5 games sound reasonable?
p.s. how do some people manage to have 150+ games at one time and still win huge numbers of games...
61 ( +1 | -1 ) in reply to your ......first question: "How many games should I have....?" That depends on you. The time you have available to spend on chess. How much time are you willing to give to your games?
"Quality or Quantity?" Go for the quality, not the quantity of games. That is the only way to improve your game. Spend quality time.
"How can people play 150.....?" I have no idea but you have to look at yourself in the number of games you can play not what others do.
Also, how many games have long reflection time, postponed games etc. will also help you determine the number of games you can handle. Chuck
