The 2010 US Chess League season came to a close a few weeks ago, and now it comes to a close for all of us here on IM Sam Shankland won "Game of the Week" honors for his victory over, almost unarguably, the strongest and most celebrated player in the history of the league -- and the reigning MVP -- GM Julio Becerra. Sam's play was technically sound, and ended with a nice Opposite Colored Bishop ending (remember the rule of 1-diagonal).
