22. Bxh6 22...Bxh6 as you said 23. Neg5+ 23...Kh8 (if Bxg5 then Nxg5+ then Kh8 because Kh6 is impossible due to Re4 which is lights out. After Kh8 then Re4 then Nh7, Rh4, Qxe5, Qxe5+, Nxe5, Rxh7, Kg8, Rxe7 and white will end up two pawns up) 24. Re4 24...Bg8 25. Rh4 25...e6 because there is no way to defend the bishop meaningfully 26. Rxh6 26...Bh7 or Nh7 27. Nxh7 27...Nxh7 or Bxh7 depending on the position 28.Qh4 and the game will soon be over
i cant wait till iam a GM
way to D up. with that much heat on me i would have been crying for my mama. great job!!!
It would be 1000x more insightful if you would be honest and tell us what positions you saw during the game, after the game and then what you only saw with the help of a computer! Zero GMs do this consistantly in lectures so we as the learning audience have no way of knowing what was actual human calculation and intuition vs. post game computer analysis.
Please spare us the "im a genius let me show you everything I "calculated" and instead try and give us insight into how a strong GM actually thinks!"
Great video. I also did well in the under 1200 section in that tournament placing 5th almost got 2nd but lost my last game. I hope to win all my games in the world open in the under 1200 section.
Nice video! Where can I find the Dzindzichashvili vs Shankland video?
Nice defense .... you called this guy's bluff ... I guess ... or your intuition was better than his unless he miscalculated something? What did he say in the post mortem about his B sac?
At 10:40, "White has completely..." what? I've listened to it about 5 times and can't figure out what Shanky mutters. "Burned the bridges," maybe?
Stunning game - go Shanky!!
Great stuff. :)
I like the way you used intuition to find good moves!
good steps but short v
If white had not sacrificed on g6, what would have been the best plan?
little bit short video
Very impressed with your defense. What were time controls, you never mentioned it though you said you experienced time control pressure.
by GM Sam Shankland
The City of Brotherly Love played host to one of America's strongest open events so far in the year 2012, and our own Sam Shankland was there competing amongst the best! GM Shanky showed love for his brethren by beating them on the chess board -- and he starts off this video series by reviewing a game where he defended off a fierce attack from Georgian GM Kacheishvili.
