    3 hours studying a day, apart from on Wednesdays when I'll have at least one long game.

    I work at a circulation desk at a library--probably half of my time I spend playing chess online. Outside of work, maybe an hour or two every other day. I may go a week or longer not playing outside of work, though.

    about 7-8 hours, a day, for about 10 years. hard to say how much playing because i tend to play a game, and if it was interesting, i then study concepts in it, which may lead me to endgame investigations, etc. So they sortof happen at same time.

    I reckon I average about an hour, maybe a little better on good weeks.

    I used to put in some serious amount of time like a year before, something around 3 hours a day for a few years, and with that, a lot of following chess news, events, interviews and other bits of chess culture, being a fanboy of certain players, collecting chess quotes etc.

    Especially for the last months I sadly don't have time for any serious study, I hate blitzing but that's what I've been doing in my correspondence games here for months and I'm watching my ability and quality of my games diminish with utter desperation.

    Weekday = 2-3 hours

    Weekend 4-6 hours

    Sounds like a lot but it's not really work seeing as technically it's a game.

    5-6 10 minute games every day and maybe reading something chess related in the evening.

    Probably not the way to go if I would wanna be better XD
