Leave Online Chess

I thought Online Chess was very good but exams hit me hard.

I really wanted to stop playing chess during exams but was unable due to the comittments. I was only playing only team matches and therefore time-outs were out of the question.

Somewhere I realized why Strategic Play did the same.

I have also quit from all the groups in which I had been admin.

Now I will concentrate on OTB and live chess.

I will not start any online chess.

Online Chess has been a fruitful experience for me , but the time for me to move beyond has come.

Thanks a lot

    I tried avoiding my games too. It didn't work. 

    Now I'm happy as a person playing vote chess occasionally, doing tactics and communicating with friends. 

    Now I find myself much better than the day I left correspondence chess. Still then, I sometimes feel I should return back and improve my rating massively. But then I'll be stuck again. 

    Good decision.

    Feel free to come back to Online Chess when the time is right. 

    I did the same thing you did, and it did benefit me.

    I have not played a single Online Chess Game for the past 6 months. This is a great record for me. Because I am so addicted to chess but now I am slowly getting DE-ADDICTED from it. It is hard but I am doing it. It is a great achievement for me.
