Bullet game analysis

What is Bullet chess about? Why would people be crazy enough to play it? Do you have time to think what you are doing? 

More importantly - what can you learn

Below is a game I played recently on chesscube.com against gazmir rated 2441 with commentary in the diagram.

The points I would raise are 

1) Don't play a main line into your opponent's pet opening.

2) In Bullet, time == material == winning advantage. "I would've won but..." is a feeble excuse. Play a sound opening that gives you tactical shots.

3) A quick, unsound move that needs time to refute (like e6 in this game) is a "good" move in Bullet and better than an objectively sound but predictable move

I played a return game after this against gazmir (and won it). Feel free to join the Bullet Chess Masters group for the analysis: http://www.chess.com/groups/home/bullet-chess-masters
