It might seem like a bold claim, but FIDE Master Hans Jung from Kitchener, a renowned blindfold master, will attempt to defeat five opponents simultaneously, while blindfolded. This is one of many amazing spectacles and events at this year’s Harbourfront Centre Chessfest presented by Scotiabank, June 15 at the North Exhibition Commons at Toronto’s waterfront.
FM Hans Jung has given more than 100 blindfold simultaneous exhibitions of at least 10 boards, including playing 26 boards simultaneously at a mall in London, Ontario, in 1993.
