Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-28-06  Autoreparaturwerkbau: Ok, white is R vs. N down. Is that such an advantage, it is not possible even to draw anymore - or is it because Hesse chickened against Pillsbury?
Aug-20-08  fischerstein: More likely Hesse totally blew the position in his head. It's a blindfold game, he may have lost track of the game and resigned

  sea7kenp: Black even has a Tempo, because the Bishop on f4 is unprotected. I don't hold much hope for White.

Was this game not part of a <Pillsbury> blindfold seance, or was it a casual game in which both players were blind, as <fischerstein> suggests?

===================

<Ludwig Otto Hesse> also lost a blindfold game to his wife. I wonder if both were unsighted, or just Otto?!
