This will be used to track chess improvement. Please don't feel bad entering a rating that is below or the same as your current rating. That data is very useful for the statistical models.
We will use yoru age to help similar players reach their chess goals and analyze the data.

Weekly chess games

We will use aggregated data from your responses to help other chess players reach their goals. Please use your best estimates. For example, if you play 6 hours of OTB (over-the-board) games in a month, you could enter 1.5 hours per week of OTB chess.
Please give your best approximation over the last 12 months. Add the initial time + increment to reach the time control. For example, a 15+10 game would fall into the rapid category (15 + 10 = 25 minutes).
