Most simultaneous games?

Irinasdaddy

One of my opponents, mishrafish, has 1270 games going at once!  I feel overwhelmed when I get past 30.  Has anyone ever seen more?

There is a guy known as ramon_palatan who once had 4800 games all at once...And he timed out in a majority of them...

Ramon_Palatan is playing only 90 games at the present time and his timeout percentage is down to only 1%.

He may be gathering strength for another massive effort.

Anyone care to guess what his rating would be if he avoided all the massive ups and downs?

Dear God, a 958 game losing streak...

AussieRookie

I just looked at the mishrafish page and he has 4251 games going at once.

Irinasdaddy

4280 now.  But why?

Irinasdaddy

Can someone post Mishra's full stats please?

AussieRookie

If mishrafish takes a continuous 10 seconds a move reply for every game, he'll get through the whole 4280 in just under 3 days, without doing anything else of course.  SurprisedSurprisedSurprised

I'm guessing his 198 game losing streak came at the end of March 2015. You can see it in the graph of his rating.

I think you need to check your math. 86,400 seconds in a day (24*60*60) means he can get through the entire 4280 at that speed (10 seconds per move) in less than 12 hours.

AussieRookie

Miscalculation. You're correct.

Brilliant - I just searched for "most current games" because I'm playing Mishrafish and thought number of current games they had going was staggering and the first thing that came up was this thread about Mishrafish. I guess it's not that surprising because with 4647 games going I guess they're playing most of us at the moment!!

Mr_Huntsburg

I wonder if he could top 10,000?

Mr_Huntsburg

or maybe 25,000!

Now that would be an amazing feat!!

Mr_Huntsburg

Go mishrafish Go!!

AussieRookie

Save your encouragement - you don't seriously think he's got any time to even read one word on here, do you? Smile

Mr_Huntsburg

As of November 8th 2015, he is playing 4888 games!

An amazing feat!!

But I believe that he can do better.

Mr_Huntsburg

4909 games and growing!!

StockyIMS

I genuinely hope someone from chess.com has emailed this guy to check in with him. Is there not a duty of care to fulfil here? Really cannot be healthy to sustain that number of games over that length of time...

Mr_Huntsburg

4941 Games!!

Plus 32 games from yesterday
