|Jan-12-07|| ||Ch3ckmate: hes bullet games in playchess are great entertainment!|
|Jan-19-07|| ||you vs yourself: This guy once was the under 16 world champion. He's an Israeli GM and if I'm not mistaken, he married an American and is now living in NY.|
|Jan-17-08|| ||Joshka: He's on with Mig now covering Corus '08.|
|Jan-06-09|| ||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.|

White is the German GM Roland Schmaltz, Black is Ronen Har-Zvi.
|Mar-09-09|| ||blacksburg: he thought for 1 second before playing 12...Qh4+. 1 second. ridiculous.|
|Jun-24-10|| ||jrichman38: Ronen now lives in Brownsville,Texas and coaches the UTB team.|
|Feb-27-11|| ||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)
|Feb-27-11|| ||wordfunph: ...and the next time they met, Ronen told GM Davies that he wanted to be a lawyer.|
|Feb-27-11|| ||Kazzak: @KingG
