Is it normal to no longer want to play chess? Or lose interest is probably a better way to put it. Is it temporary?

  • If western chess has lost its shine, maybe you'll like shogi or arimaa or go. – hkBst May 22 '16 at 9:34
  • Do many chess players like go? I cannot speak for others, but go is interesting and is evidently hard to play well, yet it has never appealed to me as chess does. – thb May 23 '16 at 1:14

Sure, that's normal.

Can you identify why you lost interest? Are you losing too much or not showing improvement? re-evaluate your studies.

If you are winning too much (boredom), find better opposition.
