Abstract

The best preparation for the mental speed in tennis is the so–called lightning chess, or bullet chess. It is the faster version of the blitz chess game, where each side has less than 3 minutes to complete all of their moves. Often bullet chess is so fast that tactics and skill are secondary to quick moves. Under United States Chess Federation (USCF) rules, bullet games are considered blitz. Every year, an over-the-board lightning chess tournament is held in Apeldoorn in the Netherlands. The time control is 2 minutes per player per game. It is the only official championship in bullet chess. The winner can claim the title Open Dutch Champion in Lightning Chess.
