I've taken a 3 month break from playing chess and i'm shocked at my drop in playing skills.
I expected a drop, but its truly amazing - i was happily battling with 1600+ players before i took my break and generally faring well, and now i'm struggling against sub-1500s.
My level of play has dropped at least 200 points and probably more - i'm shocking! I've lost the analysis capabilities I was developing almost completely.
Oh well - back to the grindstone! If anyone has some tips for how to ease myself back in, please pass them on.
