Default I.M. Sloan's Greatest Games

There was a claim that it isn't possible to tell, simply by
looking at a game or two, whether it is Patzer Sloan
playing or a Grand Master Sloan.

Let us take as a first example game 1 of the famous
match between I.M. (Ismael Mohammed) Sloan
and the strong mid-western master Brock:

1. g4 d5 2. Bg2 Bxg4 3. c4 c6 4. cxd5 cxd5 5. Qb3 Nf6 6. Nc3
e6 7. Qxb7 Nbd7 8. Nb5 Rc8 9. Nxa7 Rb8 10. Qc6 Qa5

Sloan opens with the highly original 1.g4, discredited
long ago by Henri Grob.

By move 10. Sloan has vigorously
attacked the Q's side with his Q and a knight, leaving
his remaining pieces completely undeveloped.

Now he will lose a piece and exchange queens. There
is nothing that Master Brock did to provoke this
behavior.

Brock then tries hard not to win but at move 30
GM Sloan overlooks a mate in one.

We need to consider, however, that I.M. Sloan had
to travel from NYC to the provinces and had slept in
bus depots for 3 nights straight.

Here is the remainder of this exciting game:

11. Nc8 Qc5
12. Qxc5 Bxc5 13. b4 Bd4 14. Nd6+ Ke7 15. Rb1 Kxd6 16. e3 Bb6
17. Ne2 Ne5 18. Nf4 Ra8 19. d4 Nc4 20. Ra1 Na3 21. Kd2 Rhc8
22. Bxa3 Rxa3 23. Rhb1 Bf5 24. Rb2 Ne4+ 25. Ke1 f6 26. Nh5 Rc7
27. Ke2 Bg6 28. Nf4 Be8 29. Kf3 g5 30. Nxe6 Bh5# 0-1

27. Ke2 Bg6 28. Nf4 Be8 29. Kf3 g5 30. Nxe6 Bh5# 0-1


Sorry, I'm not now and never have been a master.

Also, I think my technique in moves 11-30 was more than adequate. (I
had rather less success converting my other two won games that day...)

Finally (as I've noted before), the point of 9.Nxa7 was this cute
cheapo: 9....Rc7 10.Qa6 Qa8?? 11.Nb5! +-

Duly noted. However, we are here trying to establish whether Sloan
plays like a GM, so it seems appropriate to ascribe as much competence
as possible to his opponents.

Also, I think my technique in moves 11-30 was more than adequate. (I
had rather less success converting my other two won games that day...)


I agree, Sloan didn't have a chance, though you might have put him
out of his misery sooner. Your advantage in both other games was
almost as large at one point, but Sloan still had all of his material
at move 11.

Finally (as I've noted before), the point of 9.Nxa7 was this cute
cheapo: 9....Rc7 10.Qa6 Qa8?? 11.Nb5! +-

If you want to prove your point, you will have to pick on games I won,
not on games that I lost.
