WHY  THIS COURSE WAS CREATED:

Chess tactics win games, which is why we should work on our tactical ability. However, most players just stay sharp by solving random puzzles. Now you can stand out and get the edge in your games with Tactics & Calculation for the Ambitious Player from Olympiad Gold winner, GM Sam Shankland.

This stunning 15-hour course breaks down the deadliest tactics from top-level play, uniquely splitting them into 6 categories, ranging from Attacking the King to Endgame Tactics.

By challenging students to find the strongest moves then explaining the mechanics of the combination, GM Shankland improves both your calculation and pattern recognition, transforming you into a master tactician!

Why is Tactics and Calculation for the Ambitious Player different?

This course improves both your ability to calculate and your pattern recognition, by decoding the 49 most instructive GM examples of tactical play. You learn what works, what doesn’t and how to find the right solution on the board.

HERE IS SOME OF THE GREAT STUFF INSIDE:

  • Attacking the King: learn GM strategies for smashing through defenses and mating the king – even when the king seems totally safe. Imagine the shock when your rival sees you play 16.Bg6!!
  • Loose pieces drop off! Discover Kasparov’s “triple-threat” system for taking advantage of loose pieces and start forcing those early resignations!
  • Endgame tactics: just when your opponent is settling down for a slow, calm endgame, light up the board with tactical fireworks, sacrificing pieces and pawns to push for promotion.

An eye-opening interview with GM Shankland, live blitz session and the post-match analysis [you might want to get a pen and paper to write this down, it's important!

Some of the skills you’ll develop:

  • Dynamic destruction – most club players only sacrifice when they see a clear win. Shift your focus from material to activity and unleash moves like Gareev’s 13…Ne4!! (White was mated 10 moves later).
  • Total control – the battle for the center is the first challenge in any game. Learn how to use tactical tricks to give you domination over the entire board.
  • Always attacking – call the shots even when under attack with Sam’s “active defense” method. See how Kamsky stopped Topalov in his tracks using this 1 idea (part 5, chapter 4).
  • Endgame execution – so your opponent has survived this long? Put them out of their misery with your new repertoire of ingenious promotion tactics like Ivanchuk’s 54.e6! and 55.h5!
  • And much more!

Very Good Series Review by SILVERSTEEL77

It is a very good series by the US champion although I didn't yet covered it all. It would be much better if the resolution of these videos is 720 pixels height instead of 480. (Posted on September 3, 2018)

A Grandmaster at work Review by bvp

This is my second purchase of a Shankland video and not to my surprise I was not disappointed. The hard work and energy that he imbues in his explanations of tactics and positions draw you deeply into his grand masterly thinking process. This video has improved my chess technique immensely.
