  • My Most Longest Winning Streak In Live Blitz

    My most longest streak in blitz chess was this one in which I won 6 games in a row! Actually, all those games, I played with my friend, who is as good as me in chess. And I beat him six times! So that's why my blitz rating is over 1200. But I hate... | Mehr lesen
