To Those Who Say Bullet is Not Chess II

[Addendum Sat 13Oct2007: I have added the following game from last night to the post below with other games. I am very proud of this particular game, relative to time spent. The thing to remember is that these games are only 2 to 3.5 minutes each. In this game, I used only 1:28.3, and finished with 18.3 seconds on the clock. My opponent used only 1:13 and had 33 seconds to finish.

Try finding 19. Nxb7 in one to two seconds, about how long it took me:

Playing again, and finally the form is starting to come back. No books or extensive CTS or even CT-Art 3.0 can equate to live play. Link here and here for sound effects.

Again, for all those who say that bullet 'is of course not chess' please see the following two specimens. While I made one bad mistake in this game, I did manage to still pull it off. It is often said that ones form is comming back when you start winning lost games! I finished with fifteen seconds on the clock.

And there I was, in that 'internal dialoque' so discussed here(!) and I am saying to myself: 'DON't loose the Knight or a pawn in front of my king!' but, as Emerald Lagasse says on FoodTV, 'BAMM, BAMM, BAMM'. It is so hard to get it when, in an increment game, you MIGHT have five seconds left to move SOMETHING!:

Anyone with now regularly good photos, such as tempo, pose a serious threat to my position, so now I must work extra hard :)

(I like the whole 'side view thing')

As before the last time I published one of these, no need for a Hegelian or hermuneutical analysis, or a Laplace Transformation--just quick, brutal chess, where there is no time to ponder deep uncanny things ala Botvinnik. The execution is brutal:

Getting better at chess, the higher our performance, becomes more and more challenging. Or, as is said in systems theory: 'The most highly organized systems require the greatest energy throughput'.

Lastly, I am pursuing the old beloved 97.0% at CTS as dogWaste, and not many out of 2400 users have done that.

Warmest, dk

Sorry too distracted by the visuals... I will overcome them and review the games.

Yes, the visuals, definitely, er...

Anyway, even in "slow" chess, players get themselves into time crunches all the time. The ability to be able to play better than your opponent at high speed is at times invaluable.
