I usually play a game or two each day, and then review those games. On a particularly Go-heavy game, I might play a half dozen live games, but never really more than that. However, I’ve noticed that a few of my opponents somehow manage to play a ridiculous number of games per day, on a regular basis. A recent opponent of mine (https://online-go.com/player/587657/) easily averages a dozen games a day, with a max of at least 30.
I don’t get how people manage to spend that much time on Go. Even assuming that games are only 20 mins, which is far shorter than mine tend to be, that’d be 10 hours of playing time to make it to 30.
That got me wondering how much time other people devote to the game. Are there many players out there who are willing to sit down and spend 10 hours playing go? 4+ hours of play time on average? Or are there just a few outliers, who tend to get noticed because of how much they play? How much time do you spend, on average, playing Go in a given day?
- Minimal; maybe a game or two per week
- Less than an hour per day
- 1-2 hours/day
- 2-3 hours/day
- 3-4 hours/day
- 4+ hours/day
Granted, most people who spend 4+ hours/day playing go probably don’t have time to visit the forums and respond to polls…
