    Arun is a very good blitz player.  From the Mechanics Institute Chess Club's weekly newsletter about a year ago:

    "...

    This past Sunday over 60 friends of Mike Goodall came to pay their last respects including GM Patrick Wolff, IMs John Grefe, Jay Whitehead and Rost Tsodikov, FMs Richard Lobo, Frank Thornally and Andy Lee and a host of NMs including Paul Cornelius, C.Bill Jones, Kerry Lawless, Richard Koepcke, Dennis Fritzinger and Alan Benson.

    The 28-player blitz tournament was won by NM Arun Sharma in convincing fashion with a score 9.5 from 10 including 2-0 wins over GM Wolff and IM Whitehead and a last round 1.5 -.5 win over 9-year-old soon to be Master Samuel Sevian. NM Lobo was a distant second with 7.5 points followed by Sevian, IM Tsodikov and NM Evan Sandberg. All participants in the Blitz took home items from Michael's collection including books, sets and even a few chess ties.  Thanks to Frank Thornally, Steve Brandwein and Anthony Corrales for helping out."


    I'd rate the match as about even.
