My career highlights range from 1991-2017 and include when our Team USA won the Olympiad for the first time in 79 years in Baku!
GM Sam Shankland represents the new generations of American chess powerhouses and was part of the gold-medal winning USA team at the 2016 Olympiad.
So when he agreed to share his chess improvement formula in a comprehensive step-by-step course, we made that our mission; the result is the Shankland Method!
In eleven short years, Sam Shankland took himself from a smiling 11 year old yet to play his first tournament to the highest rated US-born player in the country since Bobby Fischer. He uses the same training regimen with all of his students to assist them in reaching their maximum potential. Shankland is highly sought after and has worked for the reigning World Champion, Magnus Carlsen.
Sam Shankland is available for private and group lessons, lectures, simultaneous exhibitions, appearances, and of course tournaments.
Contact Sam Shankland directly here for tournament invitations, sponsorship offers, and lesson/appearance inquiries.
