Kf2? for the third puzzle? Whoops.
yep. I saw it. c6 in 10seconds. f4 is the only thing I can see. I'm sure it's wrong.
great video. thanks
An entertaining and instructive lesson, quite advanced for me but I enjoyed watching it all the same!
Very interesting game, lots of tactics, thanks for sharing!
Goldilocks! I love it.
Hi Sam Shankland
Thanks Sam. We learn more from losses.
Great video. good luck in your next tournament!
thanks a lot for the video... first time I was able to find the correct moves after pausing the video :) just have one question... what about Rb2 in 15:20? may be needs more analysis... but I think it should be a draw...
Good video Sam. A mistake I am sure we have all made!
No Nate... Qxg3 hangs the rook and black wins. The move is Kh2 and literally all of blacks pieces are hanging.
Thanks for the lesson Sam , I guess this is also a lesson on not giving up too early from black :]
after Ng3 Qxg3 white wins a piece
When you play K-H1, how does it play out for black to play K-G3? Thanks for the lesson Sam

Never let up! As GM Shankland explains here today, sometimes over-confidence can lead to a slight lapse in focus, and when that happens a sharp opponent won't miss his opportunity to strike back! Learn from Sam's mistake here today, and pay close attention to the interesting and dynamic way black found new life in what seemed like a lost game...
