Default Proof that Sloan is better than Shahade

I thought that would grab your attention.

Actually, I just located a newspaper clipping from the New York Times
which has the game where I defeated Michael Shahade in the 1969 US
Amateur Championship.

The clipping is at
http://www.samsloan.com/shahade-sloan.pdf

This was before Greg and Jennifer Shahade were even born, so do not
blame them.

I have posted the article at

Sloan defeats Shahade, Finished Second in 1969 US Amateur Championship

Newspaper clipping from the New York Times.

I have been looking for this newspaper clippings from the New York
Times for years.

I need to thank Bruce Monson, author of a book on the Belgrade Gambit,
for helping me to find it.

United States Amateur Championship
By Al Horowitz

THE recent United States Amateur Championship in Philadelphia was won
by the New Jersey expert Kimball Nedved, who swept the Swiss system
field 6-0. Sam Sloan finished second: 5 1/2-1/2. Five players tied for
third with 5-1 each: Richard Pariseau, George Millar, Ross Nickle,
Denis Strenzwilk and Jack Kepler.

This event, which attracted over 250 players for the championship and
reserve sections, produced a bounty of sharp, tactical triumphs that
should be included in any volume on sparkling brevities.

In the Schliemann Defense to the Ruy Lopez, Nedved vs. Millar, White's
early reaction to Black's speculative debut is mild indeed. But after
this innocent start White molds a kingside assault studded with
thematic ideas, containing Black's fluent development.

It is classically instructive to observe how much of Black's army is
bottled up away from any action because of the unyielding stand of
White's pawn on KB5.

White winds up most brilliantly, giving up s bishop and thereby
forcing checkmate, delivered by the white pawn at KN7. However. not to
be overlooked is the amazingly original maneuver by White's knight on
the eighth rank. This is the propelling high-powered engine that
sparks the combustion.

In the Center Counter Game, Michael Shahade, defending U. S. amateur
titleholder, vs. Sloan, the battle wages psychologically for a
clear-cut decision, owing to each player's need for a full point to
emerge on top.

With 7 P-B5, of course, White is committed to a rigid pawn skeleton on
the queen wing. But Shahade hopes the ending will favor him on account
of the backwardness of Black's queenside pawns.

With admirable resolution White castles long in the face of Black's
rook, commanding a partly-opened file. He even dares to play 14 P-R3,
allowing the rook to squat menacingly: 14 . R-N6. Calmly, with 15
B-B4, White sights on his QN8 and prevents Black's doubling of rooks,
nullifying the advance of Black's knights with 15...N-K5.

However, Black has the final convincer. It is 17 ... P-K4. This push
breaks down the true bastion of the first player's defense. If he
takes the advancing unit or ignores it, he is doomed.

In the Caro-Kann Defense, C. Heising vs. Nedved, White's loss of time
by irrelevancies-6 P-B5 and 8 B-B3--gives Black the opportunity for a
sharp and decisive pawn break with 9 ... P-K4.

From this point on, White's game quickly disintegrates, even though
with 15. O-O he pretends to hold out. Perhaps White forgets that the
easiest way out of a painful tableau is a graceful resignation.

Default Proof that Sloan is better than Shahade

This also proves that I'm an arrogant prick. Don't you agree?

Sam Sloan

Good game. After 14. a3, all I could see was ... Rfe8 or ... Rb7. 14.
.... Rb3 was an excellent move that really began to tilt the game in
your favor.

No. Your prick is not arrogant. It is quite humble with a slight bent to the
left. I felt sorry for you after I met your prick.

The only 9" dick you have ever seen is the one your Daddy used to **** you
with.

My mother certainly never saw it, as she is a hard-core lez and I was
adopted. It was kind of cool back when I was a kid and I would sneak a peak
at Mom and her girlfriends.

Not half as sorry as others must have felt for you after this monumental
occurrence.

You should know. I have a feeling that most of you hate Sam because he has
anally molested more than one of the complainers.
