Playing one minute online: Every moment counts!

When you play one minute or two minute games, flagging in bound to happen. It may not be by much, but 0.1 seconds can be the difference between a +10 gain or a -6 loss

This blog is going to discuss the ugliest results in bullet history (personal) for a one minute game.


Game 1

After starting the day at 2034, I made an ascent to 2095 before closing at 2084. I meet this guy: CogSciGuy, rated 100 points lower than me. We have a match, with me winning 4-3 in a heated battle. This was game 6.




 Game 2

After starting the day with 2095, I fight against adversity to rise to a 2147. I finish the day in "style":

Game 3
As I break 2200 for the first time, I am quickly booted back to 2186 by a 2300. Then, this FM decides to pick on me. What a bad choice he made. Tongue out
The only advantage I held in all three games was a time advantage. But that proved to the difference between a 23 point loss and a 16 point gain, a differential of 39 points! That is a lot! I have many of these games that went against me...

So my closing remarks are: do not be a victim! In 1 0, premove, premove and premove appropriately. If you know you are going to flag, capture your opponent's every piece!!!
If you're losing, stay opportunist, and play sharp! Never give up!
