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!
