Sam Shankland Lecture

Banner:  Tony Cortizas, Jr.

DateFriday, May 19, 2017
Entry Fee$20 BCF members, $30 non-members
Round Times7:00pm - 9:00pm
DescriptionThe games of the great positional giants of chess - like Karpov, Kramnik, and Carlsen - show them consistently using little tactics and concrete calculation to advance their positional goals. GM Sam Shankland will address this topic in detail, showing examples of cases where one needs a high level of tactical awareness as well as precise calculation to make comparatively modest gains. And Sam’s DVD set “The Shankland Method” will be available for sale at a discount!
GM Sam Shankland is a two-time Olympiad Gold Medalist (2014 and 2016), a former World Under 18 co-champion (2008), and winner of several high-level international events. He has worked as an analyst for the reigning World Champion, Magnus Carlsen, training with him to prepare for the 2014 and 2016 World Championship matches.

A buffet dinner will be provided for all attendees.
