I started playing Blindfold Chess a couple of years ago. After several matches I became fascinated with the way it feels to play blindfolded. My dream is to break the world record for the most simultaneous games played at a time. I plan to match 50 opponents (or likely more!) and I must achieve a score of at least 40 victories. To prepare for this world breaking event, I will be training extensively both physically and mentally. I will be doing exhibition training matches all over the world. Invite me to conduct a blindfold exhibition match in your city: email@example.com.
"Watching Timur play blindfold simuls and blindfold blitz is the most amazing triumph of the mind I've ever seen in fifty years of chess."
-Brad Lundstrom, Chess Teacher & Coach at Chessmates, Ft. Collins, CO"It gives me great joy to know that some day when I look back on all of the athletes I covered in my life, I’ll be able to say the most impressive guy I ever saw was an exercise-bike-riding, walnut-eating, flip-flop wearing, blindfolded chess player."-Shad Powers, Sports Columnist for The Desert Sun
