Timur is truly an impressive talent and seems a very nice person also after meeting him.

Was a great night and well done to all who organised the event, especially Leonid who worked as Timurs eyes in calling out all the players moves and moving the pieces for him.

Good to see another blindfold simul being played in Oz. Jono has played a few too!

The games can now be viewed on the Chess Victoria website: http://www.chessvictoria.org.au/games/memorable-games . One of the games wasn't recorded so there are 9 to play over. This simul was played relatively quickly, with clocks (taking around 3.5 hours; as a point of comparison, Morphy's famous 8-board simul lasted around 10 hours!), so despite some amusing oversights, it was a terrific performance and lots of fun for all involved!

I think some browsers may not be displaying the games, but they appear to load on chrome at least.
