23 with phone
First 11 with black, switched it and got 18, then 18, then 19
Tried again got 9, 10 and 12.
Has anyone written a blog about this?
After playing blitz I can do somewhat better. Here is a 21:
28 on tablet
Bump I got 15 second try. When I was really sleepy I got 8
The frightening thing about it, that I can't improve, even if I practice. My bullet is terrible, but with a lot of play I can improve my rating in a cumbersome way bit by bit. But in coordinate training it is 21 for me. This is a glass ceiling - no breakthrough possible.
@watcha - try again next year : regular chess practice will improve your results at this drill.
I think also you could get out a physical board and play out 1 game each day. After a month of this try again. I think physically moving the pieces to the sqaures will help.
13 as both Black and White on 1st tries. That's why I don't play Bullet and am not happy playing Blitz!
Bullet must have some ingredient apart from general chess knowledge. At every site that I play my bullet is way behind my other ratings. Below three minutes chess turns into a completely different game, where some mysterious skill begins to dominate that has little to do with chess understanding.
It is said that 2m+1s is equivalent to 3m+0s. But this is not the case: I'm underperforming seriously in 2+1 compared to 3+0. May be different people play 2+1 than 3+0 just because it is called bullet.
If you see "d6" and your eyes go right to it, but you can't get your mouse over it (it goes to the squares around it and you click the wrong square a few times) then ok, it might have something to do with your bullet rating.
As for your bullet ratings being so far off... 100 points difference from your blitz? That seems completely reasonable.
I don't care about ratings ( they are not comparable ). My percentiles are very different, this is the measure I take seriously.
