I don't know why, but I am waaayy waaayy weaker at blitz than I am regular chess. It's weird, tactics and attacking are probably what my "natural strength" is in chess, but I seriously blow at 5 minute chess. I either waste too much time with my plans, or I play quick and blunder.
I hate it.
Interesting game though.
