Calculation Book Camp with GM Sam Shankland
Join 2018 US Champion and currently no 32 in the World, Grandmaster Sam Shankland to a calculation book camp online from 17-19 February 2023. The camp is held in celebration of the release of his new book Grandmaster Training Camp 1 – Calculation! by Quality Chess in the middle of February, but will not contain material from the book.
The camp is held at Sam’s online academy, killerchesstraining.com, and will take place over three days with three hours per session.
Beyond the presentation of topics with illustrative examples, the students will have had a chance both to solve exercises in advance of each session and to solve during the session, with topics and methodology being discussed. Sam will see these exercises for the first time and will not know the solutions before he and the students will see them together (which is the idea of his book also). Student involvement is what will make this camp special.
The material will be at a spread level, giving challenges to both club players and higher-rated players.
Don’t miss out on the chance to train with a top grandmaster!
GM Sam Shankland won the 2018 US Championship and has played Board 1 for the US Championship twice. He has won two Olympiad gold medals, was in the Quarterfinals of the last World Cup, and won against top players such as Karjakin, Mamedyarov, Polgar, Kramnik, Nepomniachtchi, and more.
