<h2><span style="font-family: 'arial black', sans-serif;">How can I benefit from this?</span></h2>
In each of the 55 chapters, GM Shankland examines an instructive, dynamic game, revealing why and how the winner was able to create chances and convert them into victory.

Sam asks us to consider one question: if we have a strategic or tactical aim but our opponent seems to be preventing it, what happens if we play it anyway?

It’s this consideration that allows us to put maximum pressure on our opponents and opens up a new world of creative possibilities at the board.

Sam has carefully selected the games so that most of them should be new to you, even though they feature some of the biggest names in the game, including Carlsen, Anand, Topalov, Kasparov, and Aronian.

Of course, Sam includes plenty of his own games too – losses as well as wins – revealing the secrets he has found in his analysis.

<span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong>Here's what you get with this super collection:</strong></span>

<span style="font-family: 'arial black', sans-serif;"><strong>The Shankland Method:</strong> </span>

This mindset-altering training teaches you how to think like peak Kasparov, relentlessly advancing with dynamic shots until your rival finds themselves pushed off the board.

<span style="font-family: 'arial black', sans-serif;"><strong>Tactics &amp; Calculation for the Ambitious player: </strong></span>

Sam’s second <em>Method</em> is the calculation training you always wanted but could never find. GM tactics explained so clearly you’ll never forget them.

<span style="font-family: 'arial black', sans-serif;"><strong>80/20 Tactics Multiplier – Grunfeld: </strong></span>

Master this deadly opening <em>without</em> learning theory! Shankland breaks this opening down into the key strategic and tactical ideas of each typical position so you know <em>what</em> your goal is and <em>how</em> to get it done.

<span style="font-family: 'arial black', sans-serif;"><strong>Crushing White with the Schliemann Gambit</strong>: </span>

This anti-Ruy Lopez gambit is played by Radjabov, Ivanchuk, and Aronian… and Carlsen even used it against Anand! Full of venom and nasty tricks, this is the perfect “secret weapon” to add to your repertoire.

<span style="font-family: 'arial black', sans-serif;"><strong>Stomping the Sicilian: </strong></span>

Learn how to take down Black’s most popular setups – including the Dragon and Najdorf – with powerful strategies taken directly from the games of Fischer, Anand and Carlsen’s stunning double sac game against Nakamura!

Sam teaches at a fast pace and demands the interaction necessary for you to make real improvement. For any ambitious player looking to take their calculation, attacking play and dynamism to a very high level, there is simply no other course like this.

Includes a 1-hour bonus of GM Shankland playing online blitz, voicing his thoughts and analysis in real time plus a fascinating insight into his personal philosophy and best advice for improving players in a Q&amp;A session!

Sam took a very different appr

Sam took a very different approach to teaching chess by first going through tactical opening blunders from the Grunfeld. He then explained the defense. I think this was a very good approach and I feel that it has helped my game! Calvin

What if I tell you that you could learn all of the improvement secrets that helped Sam Shankland rise to become US Champion?

You’re getting all 5 courses Sam has recorded for us – a total of 46 hours of elite training on openings, tactics, calculation and dynamic play.

Study these and your chess will go through an Incredible Hulk transformation!

This incredible 16-hour course from Super GM Sam Shankland reveals his approach to becoming a master calculator and finding the most forcing, powerful moves at the board.

About the Author:

Sam Shankland is an American Chess Grandmaster and the 2018 US National Chess Champion. He is a mainstay of the US Olympic Team, a two-time Olympiad Gold Medallist (2014 and 2016), a former World U-18 co-champion (2008), and the winner of several international events.

He has worked as an analyst for the reigning World Champion, Magnus Carlsen, training with him to prepare for the 2014 and 2016 World Championship matches.

As of 2018, he’s ranked #27 in the world, with a Fide rating of 2727, which is also the highest rating of his chess career.

How can I benefit from this?

In each of the 55 chapters, GM Shankland examines an instructive, dynamic game, revealing why and how the winner was able to create chances and convert them into victory.

Sam asks us to consider one question: if we have a strategic or tactical aim but our opponent seems to be preventing it, what happens if we play it anyway?

It’s this consideration that allows us to put maximum pressure on our opponents and opens up a new world of creative possibilities at the board.

Sam has carefully selected the games so that most of them should be new to you, even though they feature some of the biggest names in the game, including Carlsen, Anand, Topalov, Kasparov, and Aronian.

Of course, Sam includes plenty of his own games too – losses as well as wins – revealing the secrets he has found in his analysis.

Here’s what you get with this super collection:

The Shankland Method:

This mindset-altering training teaches you how to think like peak Kasparov, relentlessly advancing with dynamic shots until your rival finds themselves pushed off the board.

Tactics & Calculation for the Ambitious player:

Sam’s second Method is the calculation training you always wanted but could never find. GM tactics explained so clearly you’ll never forget them.

80/20 Tactics Multiplier – Grunfeld:

Master this deadly opening without learning theory! Shankland breaks this opening down into the key strategic and tactical ideas of each typical position so you know what your goal is and how to get it done.

Crushing White with the Schliemann Gambit:

This anti-Ruy Lopez gambit is played by Radjabov, Ivanchuk, and Aronian… and Carlsen even used it against Anand! Full of venom and nasty tricks, this is the perfect “secret weapon” to add to your repertoire.

Stomping the Sicilian:

Learn how to take down Black’s most popular setups – including the Dragon and Najdorf – with powerful strategies taken directly from the games of Fischer, Anand and Carlsen’s stunning double sac game against Nakamura!

Sam teaches at a fast pace and demands the interaction necessary for you to make real improvement. For any ambitious player looking to take their calculation, attacking play and dynamism to a very high level, there is simply no other course like this.

Includes a 1-hour bonus of GM Shankland playing online blitz, voicing his thoughts and analysis in real time plus a fascinating insight into his personal philosophy and best advice for improving players in a Q&A session!
