Personal Notes

I'm currently working on a chess openings book.

If you do not like losing on time, then you should use increment or a slower time control.

There's an obvious severe deflation in the ratings on ICC. Just look at the decline in the ratings of BulletB, BulletC, and BulletD.

There's a good reason why I achieved new 1-minute and 5-minute rating highs. I also tied my 3-minute best rating twice in 2019.
