Default My Game against Grandmaster Smirin

I am on a roll. Here I drew an International Master in the Forth Round
in an exciting game with pieces hanging all over the place.

In the unlikely event that I could keep this up, I might get a norm
for the International Master title.

I played the entire game using only 15 minutes on my clock, not
counting the 30 second time delaye.

[Round "04"]
[White "Sloan, Sam"]
[Black "Zlotnikov, Mikhail"]
[Result "1/2-1/2"]
[ECO "A00"]
[WhiteElo "1902"]
[BlackElo "2279"]

Default My Game against Grandmaster Smirin


Congratulations on your success in these two games, Sam. In your
game against IM Zlotnikov, it looks like you followed the advice of
Simon Webb in "Chess for Tigers". He advised that when facing a much
higher-rated opponent, you should try to make the game as complicated
as possible, on the premise that even though the opponent can probably
handle complications better, if you make it complicated enough neither
one of you will have any idea what you're doing, and so he may make a
fatal error.

On the subject of Damiano's "Defense" I did a little statistical
research. My database has 142 games that start 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 f6,
dating from 1620 to 2004. White scores an overwhelming +115 -21 =8,
83%. If we add the moves 3.Nxe5 fxe5, the percentage goes up to ***
96% ***, +22 -1 =0.
Just for you, here's the one game Black won:

You're lucky he played 26...Kxd8? instead of 26...Kxd7!, when you're
probably busted: 27.Qxg7+ Kc8! 28.Rhf1 (necessary to prevent 28...Qf2+
etc.) 28...Rxd8 29.Qg3 Qxg3+ 30.Kxg3 Ne2+ 31.Kh4 Nxd4 and Black has
all the winning chances. But that's the complications effect I
mentioned.
