ups and downs in bullet chess

ups and downs in bullet chess

Jan 27, 2014, 8:44 PM 4

In the last month I've twice gotten over 1800 in bullet chess very, very easily.  My wins came in huge streaks and at times seemed effortless or destined.  In my mind I was already preparing to write my book about how I beat smallville, eilysium, and esserman to become the world's new 1 min champ. 

My altime high is from like 2 years ago, 1815, and both i got over 1800 so easy i then tried to get a new record and something really weird and depressing happened.  It's like all of a sudden I couldn't do anything right.  I was always losing by 1 second 1 move away from mate, and with my opponent with 1 second left, or if i had a mate in 1 with 20 seconds left they would mate me the next move, or i would get totally blown out, couldn't think, i ran out of time when they had 40 seonds left or something.  I don't know, but it was friggin ridiculous, and i swear to holy jesus that i tanked down to under 1500 BOTH times almost immediately!

I'm on my 3rd try right now, inserted is an example picture showing how i won my last 12 games in a row.  if anyone else has an enlightening story or advice on this weird physcological phenominon i'd love to hear it at this point!
