This is the shortest starting time on the clock bullet chess time control available anywhere, to the best of my knowledge…
This is crazy 3 second chess, with 1 second increment, which means that for every move I get a time bonus – in this case 1 second.
So you can see, that while in the first couple of moves i have to be super fast, i am actually building up time on my clock… this sometimes leads to surprisingly long games, lasting far longer than most ultra quick time controls…
The way to play this, is to go to @LichessDotOrg, and make a custom challenge with zero time for each side, and the minimum increment of 1 second, the website defaults your clock to 3 seconds a side…
The strategy is to go blazing fast in the opening, but then try to slow down enough to not throw away pieces, because good players will have enough time with the extra second a move, to convert positions they are winning on material.
It was going to be checkmate next move when my opponent timed out.
Fast chess, chess meme, bullet chess. Speed chess.
