    This night I have been played bullet (1 min games) in playchess until 2.00 AM. At the beginning I elevated my rating from about 2300 to 2370, but then started to fall down slowly and even feeling tired I could not stop. Now my bullet rating is 2090 and I feel tired without good sleep

    Its really like a gambling addiction.

    haha, you are very correct...you learn much much more if you play a single long game in that time...or you read something...
    I did the same many times and in the end you are very tired, you learn very little, you get bad habits and you also loose points

    Long games in internet are very tiresome. Also not too many strong players are willing to play game with slower time control than 5 min. The most popular time control in Playchess seems 5 min.

    But it would be definitely better if I would read book which I bought yesterday

    better to play 5 minutes than 1 minute games...at least you can somehow train your openings ...in 1 minute usually you just practice your mouse...
    There are no players that became strong by playing 1 minute games..it is reversed...they first get strong and after that they get high bullet ratings

    Sometimes its fun to play 1 minute games. And 2 min games (which is considered bullet in Playchess) are very playable. Unfortunately RHP blitz room have too slow interface for bullet and lacks pre-move option

    I dont say that 2 min bullet is not playable here, but in Playchess you can move faster which is very important in bullet.

    Maybe after a long night of blitz at about 6.30am ish when you are fighting to stay awake you could log onto RHP and make a very quick move in our game...just an idea!
