Sven Bot

I need a general tip here: How do I, a 550 ELO player, beat Sven, a 1100 ELO bot? I’ve stalemated against him like 5-6 times already!

Try playing more offensive - It's alot harder to defend that attack and Sven is a personality bot that likes to defend, so if you attack, there's a higher chance you win. No guarantees.

Also, I’ve beat all other bots from Martin to Emir, and even some monthly theme bots like Sleepy Magnus, Madame mate and others. So don’t question me about my ELO and why I’m pushing my limit

Yeah

I’ve taken his queen plenty and swept his rooks and knights off and tried to finish him off

But I lose my queen too and try to promote

I find Sven really inconsistent, he does blunders, looks like sometimes he's willing to give up some material for no apparent reason, and I've seen him not even defending his queen (although rare). But he's better than me the rest of the time. As a result I will win maybe 1 in 3 games but it's not really satisfying when it happens. Personally I prefer bots to be accessible (for your level I mean), but not do straight blunders like humans can do, it's a bit of a waste of time when it happens.

Play more rapid instead of bullet and get used to using a little time on each move. In the end game, use part of this time to check each of your moves to make sure it doesn't cause stalemate.
