GM accomplishments are not smiley faces.
Great series Sam! I went with Re1+ and would've been the losing 'tactical genius! LOL Congrats on your GM accomplishment!!!
this process stream-of-thought oriented video was probably as helpful to me as any three videos using fragments to discuss a theme. although apples to oranges.
Nice explanations!! Ole Ole Ole Sam!! :)
How to visualise how the board will look like after a couple of moves seems to be the key!
W=FD work equals force times distance.
Yeah, Part 1 was more of a Beginner video. Part 2 is honestly Intermediate.
Excellent insight into high level move selection. Thanks. A little scary that you consider this a beginner level video however.
Great move by move explanations make this an extraordinarily instructive video. Please do more like this one. Thanks!

One week later... IM Sam Shankland brings you the second installment of his game vs IM Mandiza! Once again, no stone is left unturned in this interesting and very dynamic battle. Did Shanky come out on top in the end, or was the missed "Nc6" shot enough to save white's position. Either way, you will enjoy this game. Watch and learn! And don't miss your opportunity for ...Qb4 next time.
