It seems that 50% actually play chess, while 50% think that they are. Hasn't 100% there-by been obtained?

This thread reminds me of the old joke where I used to work.

We were often asked "How many people work here?"
Our response: "About 50%"

At a quick glance around 8% of GP averaged out. About what my guess would be in truth.

So back to pure guess work and estimation. Any advance on 95%?

Not sure of the methodology used to calculate the percentages for Torney's, but the raw numbers of chess players themselves are interesting: over 6m, 35m, 16m, 50m and 85m people in the U.K., U.S., Germany, Russia, and India, respectively, are playing chess regularly and more than half are 18-34.

I wish your chess was as vague Gareth

It is a genuine question. There is a formula and reason for it. I am going to stick my neck out and say that 95% of people who log on have played or play in some sort of tourney.
