   Apr-30-16 Ultimate Blitz Challenge (2016) (replies)
kellmano: It's a great achievement, but quite absurd to say he should have won, because he had good positions and blundered in a blitz match. There's a guy called chessexplained who plays 5 minute games on youtube, and he often cries when someone flags him in a worse position, but the reason

kellmano: <shams> I agree it is an experiment that has shown it doesn't add to the format. Nice interview with So on now though
