GM. Wow!!! What happened to college?
GM Shanky ...WOW , I have been tought by the GREAT master himself...
Two straight 15 minute videos analyzing draws from the great Shanky? Test to see if you can find the move QxQ? It's like you rolled out of bed, threw together a video, then went to get your morning coffee and actually start your day. :P
Booo. Still a fan though. :)
Congrats GM SHANKLAND! How does that sound now?!
i am n't getting what was happened over there
Great game, really enjoyed it.
Great video, thanks!
Our Congratulations for GM Sam Shankland for norm GM
by GM Sam Shankland
Today GM (officially now) Sam Shankland continues his video series designed to bring us his personal journey through the 2011 US Championship. We left off with him and GM Onischuk moving to the tiebreaker rounds having drawn an interesting Queen's Indian. How would Sam's preparation with the black pieces hold up under rapid time controls? Watch and find out!
Players: Onischuk, Alexander
vs. Shankland, Sam
