  GrahamClayton: After his 26 board exhibition, Jung arranged a 30-board display at a shopping mall in London, Ontario. Two hours after that exhibition began, a punk rock band began blasting out music for a CD promotion release at a nearby record store. Since very noisy surroundings make blindfold displays almost impossible to give, for the exhibitor as well as the players, it had to be stopped. Jung never again had the chance to surpass his 26-board performance and to exceed Williamsís 27 game record.

  hansj: I am the only one in Canada that teaches blindfold chess. Currently I have two keen students. One who has learned to play a complete game of blindfold chess just before turning 70 and a 14 yr old with whom I practice multiple games of blindfold simultaneously (both blindfold). I enjoy that very much!

  perfidious: <hansj> On another note: do you have any of your scores from the Toronto International 1984 to hand, including the game we played in that event, though our game was likely not the most pleasant of memories for you?
