The least common title is 'WGM' (Woman Grandmaster), held by only 323 players.
One contributing factor to the prominence of games played on Tuesdays can be attributed to the scheduling of early and late Titled Tuesdays on Chess.com.
This scheduling strategy allows titled players from various time zones to participate.
