IM Sam Shankland brings us the first in a video series designed to give an "inside look" at what happens on Board 1 of the US Chess League. Though Sam lost this battle against the former US Champion, GM Joel Benjamin, his team went on to win the war that night... and the next night...and the next! Did Chess.com somehow, someway know that New England could and would eventually go all the way? Nah, we got lucky! Lucky for us, we get these great videos from Sam!
