I am truly horrible at blitz chess. I will blunder, it's just a matter of when. But I'm working on it. I like studying a bit of chess on most days. I'm trying to train my mind into reading positions more quickly. It's just that I'm not consistent under tight time constraints, so I'm always rated several hundred points lower in blitz & bullet than I am at slower times.
This game, though, might be one of my quickest wins ever. It's a great example of the dangers of not grabbing control of the middle when you can, and of how quickly, especially under blitz conditions, one blunder can lead to disaster.
