I am still yet to try my hand at blitz chess...
will probably be a while longer before I do, as right now I don't feel strong enough.
How long would you reckon it takes to play un-timed chess,
and learn theory enough to become a solid blitz player?
Or am I right in saying it significantly varies from person to person.
It's impossible to tell how you handle time pressure until you experience it. Blitz skills vary from person to person, so I think the only real way to tell is to play.
You could try the blitz room here. All of the games are unrated, so you can play and learn all you want without any risk. There are some real sharks in the rooms sometimes, so don't feel discouraged by a loss.
