Memphis Blitz Championship
Memphis Blitz Championship March 31 2000
In a field of 22 over current City Champion, Doug Eckert, on tie breaks Jake Kleiman wins!


Why do Some Players hate Blitz or Bullet Chess?
When a chessplayer hates blitz, it must be that there is a certain fear about losing on time.  It is less painless than a longer game.  The best blitz players don't hesitate.  They seem to float through the moves without thinking.  Chess sometimes requires quick decisions.  A slow game with 40 moves in 2 hours is nice, because 3 minutes per move helps lessen blunders, but with speed chess one must still take a few seconds and look for moves that are forcing like checking the King or taking a piece.                                   

Every Friday starting at 7:15 to 7:50pm the MCC takes time to discuss rules.
