08.01.2009 – Just occasionally a new book on our game turns up which is likely to be of widespread interest throughout all parts of the chess world. Blindfold Chess by Eliot Hearst and John Knott (McFarland, 2009), hot off the press, is definitely a volume not to be missed, as it is by far the most detailed study ever made of this fascinating subject. We take an early dip into it.

Eliot Hearst is giving a free lecture and book signing on Sunday at the Tucson Open. Bring in your copy to have it signed! A limited number of books will also be available for purchase at the tournament. Blindfold Chess is currently available on or directly from publisher.
