Hikaru's Blitz rating is 3021, while Magnus's  Blitz rating is only 2992. Also, Hikaru has played thousands and thousands of games in both Blitz and Bullet, which proves his rating is accurate, while Magnus has only played like 70 blitz games and 22 bullet games.

Knickers-mura doesn’t really have the stamina for longer time controls. he could maybe ask for a wildcard to join the women’s tournaments.

Dude Magnus is the one who offered a draw in a winning position on the last long game of the world championship, just so he could win in rapid tiebreakers! Only 4 pieces were missing from the board total and black has a clear advantage here:

Ask any 2000+ rated player, Magnus or Hikaru, Magnus will be 90% of the answers.
Hikaru also had the guts to rate himself higher than Fabiano. This is untrue, as Caruna is much much better than him (look at the stats)

I think it would be 99% or more

Players rated 2000+ probably don't get impressed by live chess streams and bullet games

Only 5% would say so.

I HATE RAPID AND CLASSICAL

THEY JUST TAKE TOO MUCH TIME

AND SO SLOW 

I ALREADY KEEP MY MOVE READY AND MY OPPONENT THINKS FOR ANOTHER 20 MINUTES

NOT COOL

BULLET IS THE BEST 

THE BEST

Agreed, spending 2-4 hours on a chess game is insane. I rather play 50 blitz games online for fun all in one day!

Yeah, I think that's definitely going to help my chess a lot more than one game!
