   Dec-12-19 S Sloan vs M Yoffie, 1963 (replies)
samsloan: At this time, I was rated 400 points higher than Yoffie so to draw this game seemed to be a big setback for me. However, right after this game, the rating of Yoffie shot up and soon Yoffie became an international master so this game became a big accomplishment. International Master
   Dec-03-19 Ed. Lasker vs Marshall, 1923
samsloan: Chess Secrets I learned from the masters, ISBN 9784871871341 page 276 says 32. Rb4 was a sealed move. Overnight, Lasker had an attack of appendicitis, an ambulance was called and Lasker lost consciousness while being taken to the hospital. Lasker was put to sleep with morphine. ...
   Aug-05-19 S Sloan vs William F Cox, 1956
samsloan: This was my first USCF rated win. My opponent was a professional magician. I am shocked at how poorly I played. I was 11 years old at the time. This is still kind of similar to many of my games even now, getting a lost position and still somehow winning.
   Jul-30-19 John N Buck (replies)
samsloan: I am searching for information about John N. Buck for a book. He was a personal and professional acquaintance of my mother, a child-psychiatrist in Lynchburg Virginia, but I never got to meet him or to play him. John Nelson Buck was Virginia State Champion in 1930. He was the ...
   Jul-30-19 W Addison vs Reshevsky, 1962
samsloan: This game 1962 Addison vs Reshevsky created a great sensation because the invitation to Addison to compete in the US Championship was controversial. At that time, the USCF rating system was not well established and invitations to the US Championship was by committee, not by rating.

   Jan-07-17 Karjakin vs Jobava, 2016
samsloan: Black blundered with 31. ... Rxe2 dropping the exchange to 32. Rd8+ but Black was in trouble anyway. Best was probably 31. ... Ne5 but Black seems lost anyway.
   Jan-03-17 M Geldiyeva vs J Sloan, 2016
samsloan: If Black had simply played 45. ... Kg7 instead of 45. ... f5 I do not see how White can win within the three minute time limit with only ten seconds left on her clock.
   Jan-02-17 J Sloan vs D Charochkina, 2016
samsloan: There was controversy with this game in Round 10. Julia was winning but played exf8=Q+ but pressed the clock before putting a second queen on the board. Black claimed a win. The arbiters on the spot ruled in favor of Julia and and awarded him a point but the chief arbiter changed ...
