    Black to move.

    Blitz, what is it good for? To kill time, nothing else

    I'm not a big fan of blitz, slow chess rocks!

    Is that really lost, couldn't Kg1 have given white a chance still?

    Black has plenty of winning options, I would have chosen the simple Qf6, white is tied to the back rank because of the threats from the rooks .. being an exchange and 2 pawns up .. white is hopeless

    Haha I pasted the solution right there!

    Kg1 and I pick up the bishop. Then it would be rook vs bishop and I would surely win that! Exchange the rook for the bishop and my passed pawn would win or I could use it as a distraction and go after the a pawn.

    I thought it was a nice tactics. I haven't played in months and I've always sucked at blitz but I still got some let in me

    that regardless of rahim doing the slow tactics, and me doing CTS, we both suck equally bad at blitz.
