Really.  Having other ways to spend my time, I had already started to wonder what I was getting out of spending so much time playing chess.  So I was already thinking about taking a break.  But this game really pushed me over the edge.

So, one week after blowing a game against an expert and having to settle for a draw when I should have won, I took it to a new level this time.  After spending over 3 hours playing this game and being up a rook, I blew it all away in one move.  I was so disgusted that I didn't play another rated game for 4 years.
