Can Bullet Chess really improve your chess strength? According to me most of them in this website play Bullet chess. I doubt how can this improve our chess strength.According to me "Bullet Chess is a type of chess where both the players make many mistakes and the one who makes the final mistake is the loser of the battle". So, what are your views guys? Please , let me know.
Today (27th May 2013) I reached 1900 in Bullet for the first time!
@yoohoofriends. Why did u play 124 bullet games then?
well, if you want to try out a new opening, then you might want to try it out by playing blitz, but im not so sure about bullet. it seems to fast for that kind of thing
Look, the fact that I can win by focusing on not hanging pieces and moving back and forth, even at the 1800 bullet level, keeps me from having to utilize any sophisticated ideas.
Of course, being good at chess will give you good instincts, but at the same time there are a lot of bullet specific skills that, if developed, may improve your bullet rating my hundreds of points, but not necessarily your OTB rating at the same time.
So my answer is: it tests your strength in some ways, but it will not improve your chess. Think about it: any idea you come up with in bullet chess you know already and thus can't learn If you didn't rely solely on ideas you have seen millions of times before, you'd lose on time every game.
It's fun though! :)
Thanks everybody!specialfx your ideas really helped me.
Today(28th July 2012) I reached 1800 for the first time. Hurrah!!!
chess is a game of tactics. i dont say time is not improtant but in the tactics comes first than time..... so i supprot darshan.
Bullet chess is a good way to test your intuition. Some positions only takes seconds to see the best move. Lightning intuition comes from having good understanding of openings, middlegame, endgame, tactics, and positional play. If those part of your game are in tact then you'll most likely to have success in bullet chess. As you notice people with a high rating also have a high rating in bullet chess. Improving chess strength has a lot of things to do with proper analysis of your games whether it is bullet chess, blitz chess, regular, correspondence chess, etc. But, if the person is just playing without analysis, then I don't know if that person is improving their games that much.
Bullet Chess Is a Type of Chess Where A chess Player Have to Show His Skill With Perfect Timing . It Doesn't Mean That Only Timing Is Everything In Bullet Chess . And As Darshan Told ,"Bullet Chess is a type of chess where both the players make many mistakes and the one who makes the final mistake is the loser of the battle" It is Totally True . But In My Opinion It Not Time Wasting .
I am 1700s in Bullet. And I have been trying very hard to reach 1800 for the past 1 month and I am not able to do that. Finally I left it. Considering it as a waste of time.
Ummm...Maybe for extereme time pressure if you're 2000+ in bullet, you'll probably have an edge in that, but other that that, nothin' much.
