Nov-28-11  gun0m: This is really a wow game... Blindfold
Nov-28-11  serenpidity.ejd: What is admirable about Anand and Karpov is that they play fun chess like blitz and blindfold. Speaking about blindfold chess, why did Kasparov not participate in blindfold tournaments? If I missed, why not frequently like Karpov and Anand? ( I have not seen any in the database).
Nov-28-11  Everett: Yes, Kasparov never did Amber. Don't know what his reasons were.
Nov-28-11  Pepperpot: She was too young, I think.
Nov-28-11  Everett: Well the Amber I was thinking about was of age and loved it rapid and blindfolded.
Nov-28-11  Shams: <Everett> Let me guess, she was played by Kim Basinger?
Nov-28-11  King Death: < Shams: <Everett> Let me guess, she was played by Kim Basinger?>

I'd like to play anywhere by Kim Basinger.

When I used to play this, I always tried 6...c5. 6...Ne7 looks really strange to me.

Dec-04-11  serenpidity.ejd: <Everett & Pepperpot> Amber is thinking about suing both of you!
Nov-12-14  tranquilsimplicity: Considering this is's absolutely awesome!#
