Naturally, this has made me reluctant to be the one to issue the news
release. He died several weeks ago in Vallejo, California and nobody
has done it, but it should be done, so I will have to be the one to
report it.

Eric Schiller, who often employed Haines in his book writing and
computer database projects, has written:

"His legacy is the many bulletins he did enriching our databases. A
friend who was always offering to help, but whose physical ailments
limited his work, which wasn't properly appreciated or rewarded."

Here is his greatest accomplishment. He beat me:

[Event "Chess Friends Money Tournament"]
[Site "Oakland (USA)"]
[Date "1963.??.??"]
[White "Haines, William"]
[Black "Sloan, Sam"]
[Result "1-0"]
[ECO "B01"]

Poor William Haines will have to be buried and forgotten because the
USCF Issues Forum Moderators, Tim Sawmiller, Herbert Rodney Vaughn,
and Terry Vibbert have deleted this entire thread, saying that it is
not relevant to the USCF.

The scores are accurate. That is just the way I play chess. Unorthodox
style, I might say.

At least I lasted longer against Haines than he did against Fischer.
He was lost by move 20. Had Haines known that Fischer was Fischer, he
might have resigned sooner.

No, they didn't. They moved it to "All Things Chess," where it
belonged in the first place. Has the Sloon ever been right about
_anything?_
