@Koshmot,  come read this guys post and then tell me I'm paranoid again.   You need to learn to be aware of whats going on around you and not walk around so blind and ignorant.

Again some people say bullet is just about memorizing lines,  some say its just about fast mouse movement. Some say its both.   Its all opinion,   but because its so subjective imo you can't argue its not chess.

 

I personally don't like to play or watch bullet as a fan.  I have no interest in it.    But I do respect the difficulty needed to play it, especially given the fact the super GM's prefer it because imo it has the highest learning curve and widest skill gap.  

not true

True, you simply have to know your set moves, but there is also the need to be creative, and fast

Half of that statement was true, but the rest was fake news

Nepo said as much during the WCC.   now I guess its debateable how difficult it is to play since I have no experience playing it myself.  But it certainly is hard for me to follow whats going on in a bullet game as a fan.  You also can't argue that it doesn't have the widest skill gap or that the super GM's can consistently dominate most in that time format implying it has a huge learning curve.  Especially when we see many top classical OTB players crumble when trying to play it online with no experience in it.

Bullet is difficult to play because not everyone has the chance to memorize openings and chess lines

Oh, I can't agree. Playing at speed requries having set moves, but you also need to react to being blindsided, and quickly.

Fast movement is a skill as well though.   Although I can't argue with what you said.  Magnus Carlsen himself said intuition comes from experience and knowledge.   But your claim means bullet is chess which is the topic of this thread.  Whether we like it or not.

bullet is chess whether i like it or not, and all it takes to have fast hand movements is to have some killer hands and a killer mouse

@jalex13 I’ve been thinking about this and despite the facts that the board, the pieces, and the rules are the same as I pointed before, bullet wouldn’t be real chess in most of occasions because in bullet it is harder to find the truth in the position and truth is what is real 

bullet moves become then a mere opinion and not the truth 

truth in the positions still can be found -even in bullet-  but it requires a higher level of mastery

Boby Fischer (A great chess player)
He probably hasn’t played a single bullet game in his life.

Now......... What you guys say? Was he stupid? And you are learned chess player? Duh Dah 

Well the above was a sarcasm with the internet data.

ALSO........
GM Hikaru Nakamura
 
The event has a total prize fund of $100,000, with the winner earning a spot to play in the 2022 Speed Chess Championship. GM Hikaru Nakamura won the tournament, and with it the first-place prize of $20,000, by defeating GM Andrew Tang in the Grand Final. Tang won $15,000 for his second-place finish. (29-Mar-2022)
So I said to OP
Please snatch the money and divide to us. I specially need a minimum membership FREE. I hope you will be kind enough to do that cry

TBH
Is bullet good for chess?
 
 
Bullet can improve your tactical alertness and test your opening knowledge and your intuition. It is only "bad" for your chess if you forget to slow down and think during regular time-control games. For beginners, bullet will likely do more harm than good.

That's all folks!!!

It's not that bullet isn't chess, it's just that I prefer a more substantial lunch than McDonald's if I can help it.

Bullet, while not real chess in the true sense, is the suitable substitute of the game for lazy autistics.


It seems to me more autistic to play six hour long games.

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is not very well-suited for six-hour-long matches.

Ha. I like that illustration about McDonald’s.
Anyways, why was this bumped?
