Shankland in Contra Costa Times

Last weekend's Contra Costa Times (link corrected 1:45pm) published an article featuring World U18 co-Champion IM Sam Shankland. Trying to compare chess to other sports, the reporter surmised that Sam "may not be able to outswim Olympic medalist Michael Phelps, but he could outmaneuver him — or almost anyone — in a game of chess." Having been outmaneuvered more than once, I would tend to agree with this assessment. Check out the story for interesting quotes by Sam, his father, Dr. Vladimir Naroditsky and even one comment from me.
