Monthly Bullet Arena Speed Chess Tournament [209]

This is a speed (bullet) chess tournament (Monthly Bullet Arena) I competed in on while livestreaming on . Time controls are 1 minute per player. The tournament is held, as you might have guessed, once per month. It is a 3-hour long tournament, and is a bit of a test of one’s chess endurance.

I’m a self-taught National Master in chess out of Pennsylvania, USA who was introduced to the game by my father in 1988 at the age of 8. The purpose of this channel is to share my knowledge of chess to help others improve their game. I enjoy continuing to improve my understanding of this great game, albeit slowly.

  1. I like how he calls zeros goose eggs. Obviously, it's just a pleasantly colorful metaphor, but also a goose egg, as in the lumps one gets when one hits ones head, is a mistake which one should learn from just like the zeros, being losses, are mistakes (or a series of mistakes), one should also learn from.

  2. 1:33:50 I don't think I have ever been happier to see the appearance of an old nemesis! ;-P 1:59:04 I think he's going to keep going…

  3. 2:56:58 is where justpatzer gets kicked out and everyone's scores are adjusted. Actual tournament was much closer. Great upload Jerry! Keep up the good work and this 3hrs makes up for a upload drought. I save the long ones for times like these.

  4. Watch the whole three hours over the course of the week. It was a good week.

  5. why u dont resign u have only king and premoving wtf this s annoying

  6. nice match mate and i watched the whole thing over a few days lol. Funny thing is you were in 3rd the last match you had the celebration coming lol

  7. That's sad. I was kinda rooting for Patzer. For him to have reached such a rating with such shady tactics.

  8. Three minutes in and Jerry talking about stopping commentary which leaves me deaf and blind to whats going smh

  9. I love it when Jerry says "what did I do to deserve this" always makes me laugh

  10. That one guy's name is pronounced not as puhOvik, but as puhovIk. Ir roughly means "bedding out of fluff" in Russian.

  11. hahaha very nice jerry, congrats.. I love confeti land.. I want to live there when I grow up.

  12. It's rare I see something CN misses, but I saw like 3 big misses in the course of about 5 minutes. It was about 2 hours in though, so understandably the fatigue may have been setting in.

    2:01:51 — Isn't that a free rook on e8?
    2:06:29 — The lower rook was free because the king was also on it. He goes up the exchange when he could go up a rook.
    2:07:19 — He allows the possibility of a pawn push blocking his king out. (Doesn't really matter due to time)

  13. would anyone else wear a chess network tshirt that said pinoroni is my favorite pizza topping

  14. I think I’ve seen this video like 4 times! Jerry, we need more material please ❤️👏👌

  15. Hey on 35min 40 secs you could have taken the knight having a past pawn

  16. lol 14:00 talking about how you lost that game… you were momentarily distracted and lost the bishop!

  17. you play hundreds and thousands of games online in public. there is a perspective that can see what you will do based on what you have done = you predictable. That's how he guessed all your king moves – that proves it. I have whole games like that sometimes like I can see from beginning to end the whole games like esp. but it's just intuition. the brain is a mightier organ than we know.

  18. But you won highest performance rating! Always a pleasure

  19. Wow, I really enjoyed this video!! What a fantastic surprise ending 🙂 Well done!

  20. I so much enjoy and learn from your comments Jerry, 1000 thanks

  21. I love your videos on 1.5x speed more lol. Btw my rating was around 1300 when i started watching your videos and now my rating is around 1700. Your videos gave me some decent chess logic. I never studied chess and i guess i will never do it. But i enjoy playing it so far.

  22. Are names like “pigs” and “beast” for hyper aggressive pieces your own Jerry – or part of some great tradition since my time of stuff shirt traditionalists?

    Also: have you ever played 10 x 10 Grand Chess – you know, with Chancellor and General?

  23. I love your commenting so much. I'm not a very good player and I find your insights very instructional.

  24. Jerry.. your resilenice against cheaters is inspiring.. love all your videos bud!

  25. Only person on yt that i can watch for 3 hours straight and have fun

  26. 1:04:00 How the hell is this guy doing that is he psychic?😂😂😂Poor Jerry

  27. and just when we least expected it, with an hour left in the tournament, Jerry plays another game!

  28. Reaching autoplay limits on old chess network videos feels good
