a lifted post from another site posted 3 days ago.

"His restaurant, Sammy's Gilded Pawn in Detroit MI, was recently featured in an episode of Gordon Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares USA.
It featured a bout of fisticuffs between Ramsay and Shankland which was won rapidly by Ramsay."

....though a Google search for "Gilded Pawn" restaurant produces no hits, nor does a search for any reference to this Ramsay v Shankland ruck. Are there any actual sources?

Pretty sure Geoff was just trying to be funny. It's got nothing to do with Ramsay or cooking. I've just watched the first episode. Was all right but I wouldn't watch it again. There's a bit about it on Chessbase news.

Hi James,

I posted in good faith, I don't watch cookery programmes, the source poster is usually good,
I think he got mixed up somewhere. Sorry about that. Here is the misleading link.

A picture of Sam from the reality show (I don't watch those either)

Sam is about 3rd or 4th picture further down.

I've discovered a postcard from Capablanca written to Alekhine.

Sam blundered in the elimination challenge thus ending his adventure.
