Koltanowski 56-board blindfold-simul 1960 /gauer
Compiled by fredthebear
--*--

This collection compiled by gauer. Thank you gauer!

Held at San Francisco, USA, 4th of December, 1956 by Georges Koltanowski - columnist and age 57, in which he received a blindfold and the white pieces in a simul against (some of) the following players (ordered by the amount of moves in which the opponents lasted).

29 out of his 56 total games (all but one were wins; he scored +50-0=6 overall) are present here. The wikipedia article below suggests that the blindfold games were played consecutively (or the version of their story on 26 March, 2015), giving each player 10 seconds/move. In some cases, the names of the players of the black pieces were only given partially, and might be awaiting correction slip revisions.

Note to Fredthebear: Be aware of other '60's games in here and delete them. Mouse slips happen!
