Hyper bullet chess

Looks like I'm bad at hyper bullet chess. Last time I wasn't even able to finish a KQk endgame with say 5 seconds left on the clock.
Might be I have a slow internet connection. Or maybe it needs lots of practice.

Same holds for bullet chess.

I prefer increment in blitz games. Like 3min+2sec

Before playing bullet, you have to cry and you have to go to piss.
You lose with three more pieces, you choke on the contrary, something always happens.
Premove, training and admit that you will lose even if you are winning, other times it will be the other way around.

Apologies for being off topic, but I read Victor stated sometime ago that an 8 man Lomonosov was in the works and that you were in contact with him back in 2016.

Do you know if they have any plans to start creating these tables in the near future. ?

Off topic and wrong forum - ;>) - but that's ok with me. The estimate to create 8 piece Lomonosov was that one will need about 10 PB (10000 TB) of disk space and 50 TB of RAM. In other words, it's not happening anytime soon, ;>)

Do you have fun with it? If you don't, and are just frustrated by being bad at it, there's no point in playing it, and it's best to just stick to what is the most fun to you.
