Originally posted by bill718I know what you mean. It is difficult to understand how one can improve when experiencing this problem. I'm a bit sick of playing at the moment so I might try to spend a week or two studying.
It's been proven many times that the strongest players seem to be those who are consistent with there study and game load. This is often very difficult for me. I go through periods (about 6-8 weeks) when I'm eager to play and study chess, and spend a lot of time on it, only to spend the next 6-8 weeks feeling burnt out and bored with the subject. Does anyone else experience this?
