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 <u>ability</u> to make decisions.”

- GM Sam Shankland, <em>The SuperGM Skill Set.</em>

This course is all about improving your actual skill, making you a better <u>player</u>… instead of just being the same player with slightly more knowledge.

<h2><span style="font-family: 'arial black', sans-serif;">How can I benefit from this?</span></h2>
If you’ve watched one of GM Shankland’s courses before, you know 15 hours of his lessons are equivalent to 25-30 hours of most other courses.

He packs his courses with quality content, focusing on the critical decisions and expecting you to pause the video for anywhere between 5 and 30 minutes to think about the position.

This course contains over 30 top-level games - most of them from the last 2 or 3 years - and Sam takes you through each one, challenging you to work out the best continuation for each side multiple times per game.

You’ll be learning high-end positional play, calculation, sacrifices, endgame patterns, and tons more.
<h3>What will I learn?</h3>
<ul>
 	<li><a href="https://cdn1.ichess.net/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/sam-shankland.jpeg"><img class="wp-image-1067170 size-thumbnail alignright" title="sam shankland" src="https://cdn1.ichess.net/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/sam-shankland-300x300.jpeg" alt="sam shankland" width="300" height="300" /></a><strong>Making the right decision.</strong> 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?</li>
 	<li><strong>Succeed at the higher levels in chess,</strong> 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.</li>
 	<li><strong>Develop your skills through training and feedback.</strong> 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.</li>
</ul>
In this 15-hour intensive training, GM Shankland guides you through 34 elite-level games, testing your ability to think, evaluate, and make decisions.

This is an absolutely fantastic training that really goes deep into the skills you need to succeed at the highest levels.

However, it’s not for the lazy or those who think they can become a master without having to think!

But if you’re willing to put the work in, this course will repay your efforts a hundredfold.

Improve your calculation, sacrifices, positional play, strategy, pattern recognition, and more... with coaching from one of the top players in the world today.

Overview

Super GM Skill Set – GM Sam Shankland

The Sam Shankland Chess Mastery Collection
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.

How can I benefit from this?

If you’ve watched one of GM Shankland’s courses before, you know 15 hours of his lessons are equivalent to 25-30 hours of most other courses.

He packs his courses with quality content, focusing on the critical decisions and expecting you to pause the video for anywhere between 5 and 30 minutes to think about the position.

This course contains over 30 top-level games – most of them from the last 2 or 3 years – and Sam takes you through each one, challenging you to work out the best continuation for each side multiple times per game.

You’ll be learning high-end positional play, calculation, sacrifices, endgame patterns, and tons more.

What will I learn?

  • sam shanklandMaking 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.

This is an absolutely fantastic training that really goes deep into the skills you need to succeed at the highest levels.

However, it’s not for the lazy or those who think they can become a master without having to think!

But if you’re willing to put the work in, this course will repay your efforts a hundredfold.

Improve your calculation, sacrifices, positional play, strategy, pattern recognition, and more… with coaching from one of the top players in the world today.
