Magnus Carlsen get mated in 8 seconds and rips his shirt off!

When Magnus Carlsen plays Bullet, which is any chess time control where a player has less than three minutes to make all his moves, he often "premoves" anticipating what his opponent is going to do.  Many Bullet games are played with just one minute per person.  

These time controls are played mostly online since bullet would be more difficult to play in person.   The last time I played 1-minute-chess in person, it made my arm sore for days probably due to arthritis.
