```Does anybody have any _empirical_ statistics on number of games in
a match or the length (in time) of matches as a function of the
match lengths?

I think this is based on numbers posted by JP White, from a database of some sorts. I once saw data collected from FIBS, but I can't find them now. /Lasse ```
