  KingG: Here's a video of Har-Zvi deiscussing one of this bullet games. The game is absolutely incredible considering it's 1min chess. I think almost anyone would be proud of it even in classical chess.

Mar-09-09  blacksburg: he thought for 1 second before playing 12...Qh4+. 1 second. ridiculous.

  wordfunph: "That's very nice Ronen, but it's not such a glamorous life as you might think. You will spend the next 30 years of your life living out of suitcases and fighting for control of the d5 square."

- GM Nigel Davies (counsel to his former student Ronen Har-Zvi who wanted to be a chess professional)

  wordfunph: ...and the next time they met, Ronen told GM Davies that he wanted to be a lawyer.

  FSR: Har-Zvi in Rublevsky-Har-Zvi, 1993 (apparently not published anywhere) was the first to play the extremely important TN 13...d5!! later seen in games like Delchev vs Ivanchuk, 2003.
