Sam Shankland never stops! No sooner has he been crowned US Champion - sensationally finishing ahead of Caruana, So and Nakamura – than he’s back with another incredible training for you!

Sam’s <em>80/20 Tactics Multiplier: The Grunfeld </em>course teaches you one of Black’s most exciting openings through the lens of Grandmaster tactics!

&nbsp;

And there’s no better opening for this series than the ultra-sharp <a href="https://www.ichess.net/blog/grunfeld-defense/">Grunfeld Defense</a>, a favorite weapon of both Kasparov and Fischer, famously used by Bobby to win the Game of the Century – one of the many games covered here.

<strong>How to get the most out of this course:</strong>
<ol>
 	<li>Tackle the 50 Grunfeld tactics using the included PDFs.</li>
 	<li>Watch Sam Shankland’s detailed analysis of each of the 50 positions.</li>
 	<li>Watch the 9 lessons Sam has recorded on the secrets of the Grunfeld.</li>
 	<li>Retake the tactics test, marvel at your improvement then rip through the other 100 tactics at your own pace.</li>
 	<li>Get out there and destroy some d4 dreams with your new GM repertoire!</li>
</ol>
<strong>Some of what you will learn:</strong>
<ul>
 	<li><strong><img class="alignright wp-image-431884" title="The Grunfeld – Gm Sam Shankland [80/20 Tactics]" src="https://cdn1.ichess.net/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/8020GrunfeldQg3-300x300.jpg" alt="The Grunfeld – Gm Sam Shankland [80/20 Tactics]" width="243" height="243" />Simple strategic wins</strong>. That pawn center White is so proud of is about to collapse like a house of cards. GM Shankland teaches you the weird knight maneuvers and stabbing pawn breaks that will win you game after game.</li>
 	<li><strong>Jaw-dropping attacks.</strong> As you’d expect, this course is full of world-class tactical patterns. Learn the early attack that leads to this position. Take the queen? Nah… sac our queen instead!</li>
 	<li><strong>Dynamic domination.</strong> The Grunfeld is rich in positional sacrifices that lead to crushing positions. Sam explains why they work and when to play them – game-winning moves your opponents will <u>not</u> see coming!</li>
</ul>
Sam strives for the highest quality in everything he does and this course is no different.

Study it and not only will you have a high-level understanding of the Grunfeld without having to memorize theory, you’ll also vastly improve your calculation, tactical eye and intuition for dynamic play.
