But nobody cares.

Aug-26-14  Paarhufer: <But nobody cares.> Well, ...

Played in a simul of 45 games. Alekhine played two games blindfold: this one and one against a man named Genttner (possibly Jaroslav Genttner). Both, Gilg and Genttner played blindfold as well. Remarkable performance of both sides, I would say.

  TheFocus: From a simultaneous exhibition in Moravska Ostrava, Czechoslovakia on March 17, 1925.

Alekhine scored +33=7-3. Two games were also played with Alekhine and his opponents both being blindfold; this game that he lost, and the one against Genntner, where he drew.
