  3. Blindfold chess

So I just played two blindfolded games with AD level one and blundered my way to victory in the second. I'll post the game below. It is quite amusing what I don't see, and what SF doesn't see. Anyway, does anyone have any tips for playing blindfold games? I would like to be able to beat at least SF level 3 with blindfold enabled.

And here's the game :)

Level 1 is weak. I have always found it easier to play blindfold with the white pieces as my mental chessboard has white at the bottom, like in diagrams.

I know it's very weak...otherwise I wouldn't have had a shot!
Yeah, white is probably better, though.
