Bryan, who is a self-confessed bullet addict, and rated around 2300 on ChessCube, has a rather unorthodox background. He first learned chess aged 6, but then didn’t return to the game, until aged 14; in effect, teaching himself using interactive Chessmaster lessons on xBox, in conjunction with correspondence games. Then, he watched 100s of hours of blitz chess videos, by IM Greg Shahade, concentrating almost exclusively on tactics – and, amazingly, not studying opening theory.
After Bryan’s two mind-blowing events on Chesscube – 1000 Consecutive Bullet Games and Raising money for Unifiied Philanthropy; Bryan now is aiming to another such big event on chesscube.
On August 10, 2012 starting at 8am EST on Twitch TV and Chesscube as he plays 100 Warzone chess tournaments on Chesscube while raising money for Doctors Without Borders.
