The first games recorded in the UKBGF ratings were a little over four years ago. A significant milestone has been reached recently – as Tariq Siddiqi becomes the first person to amass 10,000 experience points. A glance at the table below shows he’s the UKBGF’s most prolific player by some considerable margin…
To put it in context, this feat is about the equivalent of playing a rated nine point match every single weekday for four years. Some more interesting snippets:
The rankings contain 1,651 people at the time of writing. They have played 72,804 matches and a total of 424,232 points played. Tariq has played 1676 matches, which works out at 2.3% of all rated matches, and 2.3% of the points total as well. Of those 1767, Tariq won 875 and lost 801.
Those matches include:
- 1083 5-pointers (64.6% of the total)
- 317 7-pointers (18.9%)
- 179 11-pointers (10.6%)
