Thanks Mike. Very well presented and thanks for sharing WasabiGodzilla's true identity
Very nice game, unlike most bullet games.
The attacking motif used by Black is very, very stereotypical- even a patzer like myself has employed it recently at a regular (90'+30'') OTB game. Attached without comments (mistakes by both sides did occur). My move 8...Nbd7 is probably not best, objectively speaking, yet it was played to mask the main ...Ng4+ sacrificial idea in a clever way- since the c8 bishop gets temporarily blocked.
This email invitation to Watch this video should only be sent to Premier members, evidently the only ones who can watch it, otherwise it's nothing but a teaser advertising ploy. So I'm Unsubscribe to the Chess.com. Newsletter.
Great video. Thank you, FM Klein! :) Didn't know that etiquette about allowing the checkmate when a great tactic is being played. I had thought that resigning quickly was showing more respect. Now I know better. Thank you :)
Really awesome. However, there was a quicker checkmate: 20...hxg6+ 21.Kf6 and now 21...Rf3+ 22.Ke7 (22.Bxf3 Bh4+ and Mate) Bh4+ 23. Ke8 Ng7+ and Mate. Also quite nice, isn't it?
Looks like Bughouse without extra pieces!
At the 12:00 mark why not simply Bh4 checkmate? (after he interposes the queen anyhow)
I know Ive read a book about how a grandmaster sacrifices a queen and mate in 6 or 7 moves,but this game sacrifysing a queen in bullet! WOW! That guy that made that mate I forget his name he must be very talented and experienced grandmaster or whoever he is. I have no idea where you Mike Klein got this video.
Sorry to burst your bubble but I have seen this game before xD. However this time some one actually analyzed it!
Yeah Fabulous! Best game ever for sure. Keep it up Mike!
Here is a similar idea. Not quite a bullet game.
Such a cool game!
I'm going to guess I can't see the video because I'm a free member only. That's understandable, but it's not very clear so I watched the 1 minute preview a couple of times and it was confusing.
Thanks to @lbtr47aao for the analysis

FM Mike Klein reviews an amazing 2001 game between two of the strongest bullet players of all time: GM Roland Schmaltz and GM Ronen Har-Zvi.
Is this the most incredible bullet game you never knew about? Probably.
FM Klein shows you the crazy game along with some traps that could spring up from its Vienna opening.
