  nasmichael: This game is similar to Leko-Svidler 2005 Melody Amber Blindfold game in March '05, and I am wondering how much of the inspiration of blindfold games is from familiar patterns of the past. (Not necessarily taking main courses from the past, for the more recent game diverges from this one--I am thinking more of fragrances than main courses)

A better musing might be, from this humble novice, How does one train for blindfold games?
