Timur Gareyev vs. Sweden 9,5-0,5

Grandmaster Timur Gareyev aka. Blindfold King made an impressive score in the simultaneous blindfolded chess exhibition in Stockholm, Sweden on Friday night.

He won 9 of 10 games – and the most difficult task he had to beat was the pedals on the spinning bike – because both broke during the event!

Gareyev had this event as a training session before the world record attempt in Prag in December. He will then meet 47 chess players blinfolded.
