On an average everyday ?
on free day ?
An hour on a usual weeekday, more or less. But on Saturdays, there's almost always a tourney so that's like... seven hours of chess! :D
on average every day: 2x30 min of reading (suburb train), 1h after lunch, 1h at home after work. ~3h/day
friday is the local club day. ~6h on friday.
i don't play/study so much on week-end : i have a family :) perhaps 2h/day.
~20-24h/week. is that too much ? i don't know..
About three hours a week, just updating my games on here, and occasionally playing a 10min blitz game.
Average day a few hours
Free day, as much as 10 if I can get away with it although I found if I play 6-7 hours straight I tend to get burned out for that day, with a few small breaks for food and such 10 isn't so bad.
when I wake up at 10 a.m to 4 a.m or less but not less than 11 p.m take off 4 hours for my launch ,breaks and everything it will be ,total = 10 TO 14 hours :- )
I'm addicated on chess
I've been busy recently, but most of the time I'm doing something related to chess for several hours if I have enough free time. I still go to school, so I can't do as much chess during the week.
An average day? Seven or eight hours. A free day? Fifteen or more. I only wish I were kidding - I'm addicted to the cheapest crack in the world, I guess. Schoolwork-schmoolwork, I'd rather be pushing wood then paper.
As much as I study chess -- an hour a day.
Trying to get back into this game after decades of absence, and I am retired, so I try and start with an hour of Chess Mentor followed by several hours on Chessmaster 11. Progress is sure, but slow........
