BLINDFOLD CHESS

Postby elmerdsangalang on Sun May 17, 2009 10:46 am

Dear Sir,

Chess has been my lifetime hobby since I learned the game at age ten. I am fascinated by all of chess’ various facets: over-the-board tournament chess, correspondence chess, chess in the internet, computer chess, chess studies and problems, simultaneous displays, etc. But the subject I find most intriguing is simultaneous blindfold chess. I had lots of questions. (How can the simul player remember the changing positions on different boards? Who is the record holder of the most number of simultaneous blindfold games played? Who is the best blindfold chess player? Is blindfold chess playing harmful to one’s health?) They have largely remained unanswered until I read the book, Blindfold Chess.

This most wonderful book about the most enigmatic facet of chess, Blindfold Chess, was written by Dr. Eliot Hearst and John Knott. The authors spared nothing – time, resources and effort - at researching all available material on the subject to make their scholarly output the definitive book on blindfold chess. Their devotion to their work reminds me of university professors who, in their dedication to their profession to impart knowledge to their students, notwithstanding their mastery of the subject matter, meticulously prepare their lecture to provide the answers to all possible questions that they anticipate might be raised in the classroom.

Enhance your appreciation of chess by learning more about one of the most interesting aspects of the game we all love. Visit this website now:

GM Eugenio Torre plays Tennis and Chess simultaneously but someone has to shout the moves at the tennnis court and move his pieces too.

That's interesting. I couldn't do something like that. I'm not even that good of a chess player.

Playing chess while blindfolded? I would definitely bow to any person who's able to do that. Playing chess is already something I regard highly, what more if played blindfolded? Amazing.
