  whiteshark: Starring on a blank board at the screen, moving hidden pieces with a cordless mouse. LOL Just to clarify. :D
Sep-22-10  Pygeum Lycopene: i think Radjabov mistake here was playing tame 31)...f6. ...f5 to at least make attempt to get knight to d5. these blindfold games to me belong under 'variants'. players' records in blindfold games should be separated from their normal games. it tests something other than chess. results shouldn't be factored into ratings either. guys who run this site should have done this long ago. a blindfold win means %$%^&*.
