Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-10-08  Green Bishop: Both players played blindfolded and Reshevsky was 8 years old! In "Los Niños Prodigio del ajedrez" author Pablo Morán say the player with black pieces was R. C. Griffith. (maybe Richard Clewin Griffith, a British champion)
Feb-10-08  DarthStapler: Reshevsky sure had some "Guts" to play this way! Ha!

  chancho: <Accepting invitations from Chess clubs, the Reshevsky family began to tour the major cities of Europe. Young Reshevsky amazed and delighted all who saw him play. He conducted games blindfolded, defeating players of master strength in this form of chess.>
