  1. Rated 3 out of 5

    This is a fine course for anybody who is interested in a professional player who annotates games. The best feature of the course is that Sam Shankland is an excellent instructor who clearly dissects interesting matches and breaks down ideas. The downside of this course is that it is a collection of annotated games, with little historical significance. I though this course will teach players such as my self on how to properly train and study material, but instead it was a collection of annotated games. It is a fine collection of games and Sam even breaks up the collection into themes and ideas, but, at the end of the day, the game collection is not what I anticipated and this course is average. However, I do recommend this collection to any player that does not have a collection of professionally annotated games in their library.
