2006 in Numbers

Just like last year, I used the kgs stats page for this. It is not totally correct though, since it doesn't include teaching games. This means that about forty of my minue games must be missing and any other teaching games I played. But at least it gives some idea of how many games I played and how I did. Also, it doesn't seem to make a distinction between 19x19 and other sizes. But still interesting to see the statistics.
Player 'nannyogg'. All games.

From 2006-01-01 to 2006-12-31 (365 days).

Number of games played: 285
Number of unfinished games: 0
Number of forfeited games: 0

Number of wins: 95
Number of losses: 190
Average number of games per day: 0.78
Win ratio: 33.33 %

Number of games played as white: 122 (win ratio: 43.44 %)
Number of games played as black: 163 (win ratio: 25.77 %)

Number of different opponents: 84

Random remarks:
  1. I played less games than I expected, even if you take into account the inaccuracies in this counting. Last year, I played 650, this year is about half of that.
  2. Looks like average is less than a game per day, which means that they must be more serious than when I played more of them, right?
  3. Most frequently played people in non-teaching games: shygost, Stormer, KittyKat (= my daughter Kate ^^), FlameBlade, and wutu.
  4. Less different opponents than last year, showing I play friends more often than 'strangers'. I have made a lot of go friends on KGS. I guess I still play more strangers on my mess-up accounts. Not that I have played them often after I gave up insane blitz.
  5. Funny thing is that last year, I thought I should play more (when I played almost two games every day. This year, I think my game frequency is just fine. My games have gotten more focused.
Haengma, tesuji, and studying pro games have been most helpful to me in my studying this year. They have helped me gain a bunch of stones. Haengma Tutorial for Beginners by Minue is a great introduction page. I recommend you read through it, even if you are not a beginner.

Time to start studying for the day, maybe I should have kept statistics of studying time. Seems too much work to keep track of it, though.
