The following game is one of my all-time best wins in 5_0 blitz. Only counting legitimate wins and opponents, no timeouts, I achieved this last week on my way to gaining my highest all-time blitz rating of 1524. This has averaged out to a little over 1400, and I'm now holding my own in this new ratings group. The excitement to checkmate a higher rated opponent is visceral. It gets the blood pumping to the heart. My opponent here is a 2240 FIDE rated player, and of course, he was probably tired or made a few blunders, as I often lose to 1200s when I am not in good mental shape. There are a few comments during the annotation, so enjoy my big win!
