How much time a day ... Do YOU spend on chess? I thought it would be interesting to see not only how much time people here at GK spend playing chess .. but HOW they spend their time.

Openings, tactics, endgame study, strategy, actually playing games, reviewing games etc. You don't have to be a higher rated player to post, but I would especially like suggestions from some of the higher rated (1800+) players. Thanks!

all day (sort of) on days when I have alot of stuff to do on my computer, I will go online and log in here at GK. Then I make moves in my games, and once I can't make any more moves, I'll put on the "wait for your turn" thing. then i do other stuff; sometimes chess related, sometimes not

Currently I am spending two hours a day studying from the book "Training For The Tournament Player" by Mark Dvoretsky and Artur Yusupov. In fact, I spend a lot more time studying than I do playing, some days I don't even play at all !!

Kind regards,

currently this is my day- school- get on GK play a little, then I eat lunch finnish school. Then I just pick a few games ( out of chess life or alekhine's book of games- or whatever and perfereably annotated) I go over mabye 3-4 a day, then later on, probably after practice I will study books on openings( 1/2hr at most) middle games ( 1 hr or more) and endgames( 15 min at most) I don't have that much to do because I am homeschooled, so I like to spend as much time as I can on chess

Chess is life... But on the average I spend 3 hrs. a day on chess... Practice, study, or playing... The longest stretch of chess played was a full 24 hr day, a few times in my life (meaning more than once)...

well, constanly.. sort of.. on days when i am at home with nothing to do, i go online and login here at GK... then i make moves in all games possible, and once i have no more moves to make in any games, i put on the wait for my turn feature. i then continue to do other things, sometimes chess related, sometimes not, but i always interupt those things when it is again my turn... well, thats just me!
