"Checkmate: RHS Sophomore Aziz Kodirov Wins 1st Place in National Chess Tournament". A detailed article and an interview with my student.
<...> "now I see a loss as a positive thing as it will help me identify the mistakes I made and help me improve to beat even stronger opponents. Chess really is a lot of fun, and I think that most people after giving it a try really enjoy it".

"Playing a good amount of bullet games, I had experience in playing when the time ran low" - Aziz.

...Well, as a coach I neither forbid nor endorse bullet for my students. Even if sometimes I would like to forbid it radically.
