Jun-20-16  cwcarlson: There's a picture of Bob at He was born on January 3, 1939, and expired on September 20, 1986. He is well remembered and much missed. Here's a game where crushed me: Robert Shean (2012), age 34 - Curtis Carlson (1960), age 19. 1973 Spring in Laramie Open, round 4. 1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 d6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 Nf6 5. Nc3 a6 6. Bg5 e6 7. f4 Be7 8. Qf3 Qc7 9. O-O-O Nbd7 10. Bd3 h6 11. Bh4 g5 12. fxg5 Ne5 13. Qe2 Nfg4 14. Nf3 Nxf3 15. gxf3 hxg5 16. Bg3 Ne5 17. f4 gxf4 18. Bxf4 Ng6 19. Bg3 Bd7 20. Kb1 Bc6 21. Rhf1 Rf8 22. Qg4 b5? (22...Ne5 is equal. Now Black gets bashed.) 23. e5! Nxe5 24. Bxe5 dxe5 25. Bg6! (I completely missed this) Bd7 26. Rxf7 Rxf7 27. Bxf7+ Kxf7 28. Qh5+ Kf8 29. Rf1+ BLACK RESIGNS. A fine game by Bob and an embarrassment for me. Bob's father got much pleasure from watching this game, even if I didn't.
