Good morning all.
Perhaps bullet are not chess, but they're perfect when you have no time to play but you still want to do...
This is a match I played.
20. Qc1 is clearly a blunder, but after 20. Qxc8 Qd8 21. Qxd8 Kxd8 22. Nxe1; Stockfish says I'm 4.2 points ahead.
4.2 points?? It's nearly a full rook!!
OK, I traded a knight for a rook (+2) and I still have both bishops, but is this enough? My pawn structure is no stronger than my opponent's, my dark bishop hasn't moved yet and my light one is nearly useless (in fact, Stockfish suggests 22. ... a5). Finally, I can't castle anymore, so my rook won't come in play very quickly.
So, what am I missing?
