Super GM Skill Set – GM Sam Shankland
2700 Club Member Sam Shankland is back!
Sam’s premise is that while knowledge is important and useful, it’s your skills that decide how well you can play the game – a distinction missed by many players.
The SuperGM Skill Set helps you develop your skills to an advanced level by testing your decision-making and evaluation ability as though you were playing against a top GM.
“I don’t believe in passive learning… if you pause your video and think about these positions, you’re definitely going to train your ability to make decisions.”
– GM Sam Shankland, The SuperGM Skill Set.
This course is all about improving your actual skill, making you a better player… instead of just being the same player with slightly more knowledge.
What will I learn?
- Making the right decision. Even seemingly small decisions can have a big impact on your game. Take a look at this position. White has just captured a knight on f6 with his Bishop, giving Black three ways to recapture. Which would you choose?
- Succeed at the higher levels in chess, if you want to succeed, you need to develop your skill set. Memorizing ideas is all well and good, but what really decides games is your ability. As former US Champion Sam Shankland points out, real games require many different skills – it’s not enough to rely on your calculation or positional understanding alone.
- Develop your skills through training and feedback. You will have to pause the video at critical moments and treat the positions as you would if you were playing an important game. Then comes the feedback, a 2700-rated player pointing out why some ideas work and others don’t – and how you can discern between similar options in your games.
In this 15-hour intensive training, GM Shankland guides you through 34 elite-level games, testing your ability to think, evaluate, and make decisions.

They simply follow the two-step system: LEARN and APPLY. If you learn the important ideas and apply it in your games, your results will skyrocket.
Those who do it faster than others become Masters and even Grandmasters.
The only missing ingredient is… what to learn?
You can spend months or even years learning things that will not produce any major impact on your game. Those are the things that the “average” players do and get the “average” results.

Strategy is a roadmap leading straight to your goal. If you don’t have one, even the fastest car in the world won’t help you at reaching your destination. The lack of chess strategy will prevent you from winning in 90% of the times.
