First congratulations, your persistance and achievement was impressive.

Last year I hired a GM as a coach and one day I ask him if blitz help to improve. He said no although he had a good rating at chessli and chess.com. My conclusion is that blitz (and bullet) are for Masters and Youngsters.

Kids and youngsters like to play fast even at classical chess. They finish their game with 30-60min of spare time.

Masters are good players so is logical they play good at any time control. Humans like to do in what they excel. Success makes people more happy.

I am an amateur in my late 50 so I don't play blitz. I like to solve exercises and read the theory and history of our amazing game. Sometimes I go OTB in classical time control, but lately I blunder a lot and drop lot of material, time takes it's toll.

Well, Llorenç, I am a youngster, so you can challenge me on chess.com or lichess to check out how much I calculate on classical and how much time I take by move. Go to the sparring partners thread and you will find my IDs.

Firstly congratulations GM Avetik! Well, I am floating around 1860-1900 on chess.com and lichess blitz. Target is 2000. And in rapid I float around 1880-1910 and I also want 2000. Note: I have raised 230 points in all time controls last year.

Well done sensei, some of those games were extremely well played and very instructive, perhaps you should use them in the courses as further examples of just how devastating the repertoire can be.
