Product Overview

Chess in the Fast Lane!
Can anyone play a decent game of chess in one minute? Surprisingly, the answer is ?Yes? as this unique book reveals. ?Bullet? chess, where each player has one minute for the entire game, has attracted thousands of followers since it was popularized on the internet a decade ago.
In this book the authors discuss the relationship between the position on the board and time on the clock, the techniques and dangers of ?pre-moving,? bullet openings, the importance of the initiative and consistent strategy, and how endings are different in bullet chess.
The authors also explore the psychology of bullet chess and the most common causes of tactical oversights and blunders. The many examples illustrate the principles of bullet chess and how they may even apply to blitz chess and time scrambles in standard chess. Most of all, bullet chess is shown to be entertaining and addictive, and not at all as random as it first appears.

About the Authors

American Grandmaster Hikaru Nakamura is considered by many to be one of the best speed chessplayers in the world. Noted for his fighting spirit and unusual opening novelties, his laurels include winning the 2005 US Chess Championship (when he became the youngest champion since Bobby Fischer) and repeating as champion in the 2009 USCC.

Canadian Master Bruce Harper has been champion of British Columbia many times and also participated in several Canadian Championships. He is the co-author, with American Grandmaster Yasser Seirawan, of the highly acclaimed three-volume series chronicling the career of Canadian Grandmaster Duncan Suttles.
