    20 years ago I hit the Expert level OTB (briefly) and also Expert in correspondence chess, then realized I wasn't going to be a Master, or if I did, it was going to require more work than I cared to put in. Quit STUDYING and became content just to PLAY. So, I guess the answer is yes.

    i've never been content. i was 1100 and then i said to myself i'd be happy if i was 1300 and i reached it then i was like i want to be 1500 reached it now i reached 1600 and still want more. the rating isn't what i want but hte knowlidge and with that comes the higher rating.

    I think the rating isn't so important, it's more that I want to be content with my gaming. There are some situation I want to handle better and so.

    Nope!I should be rated at least 400 points higher but my opponents refuse to co-operate
