Opening/Closing httpconnection important ?

Hi, Thanks in advance for all the help... all is appreciated.

I have more of a question (not a problem)..

I am making an trivia application - in which I collect a picture from the web when ever the user answer a question.
example: ((getpicturefromWeb - askquestion => Yes/No) repeat this until game is over/won) .

So as you can see the user is able to press Yes/No button (to fetch next picture and proceed to next question) in a fast way...
My question is it Better to have the Http Connection OPEN as long as the game is still not OVER.(so I would CLOSE the connection whenever the game ends/isOver), Or do you think that it is fairly IMPORTANT to fetch each picture with a separate http (meaning I would close the connection whenever a Picture is fetched from the web) .

I have read that it is important to close the connection you open, but the question is regarding number of http requests per game ? is it better to have a single call throughout the game and have for each request it own call? 

All help appreciated... :-) Thanks

Re: Opening/Closing httpconnection important ?

i would use a separate connection and close the old one beforehand.
