Has anyone else lost the passion for chess? I'm just curious to see how other people handled it. I think i'm going to take a break after i finish up my games.
Originally posted by Dragon FireProbably. With my intense dedication to procrastination of reading my chess books, this and playing in club is really all I've been going on since I played. I have studied a little, but I credit a lot of my ability to the experience I've gotten here.
Can I thank RHP for this small reversal and will it continue?
Originally posted by chessisvanityIt is a lot harder to lose the passion in OTB chess than in online chess, though. I have noticed that my play drops significantly when I cannot touch the pieces or a clock. And you don't have those psychological factors weighing on the game. You can really throw a player off of his game by busting out 3 or 4 forced moves in a row, but you can't do that online.
lmao......now that is inspiring!

man if i was 1700 i wouldn't lose any passion for the game.....being 1350 is rough.....
