|May-16-18|| ||SugarDom: Sudden improvement. I think he's using steroids.|
|May-16-18|| ||MissScarlett: Laxatives, more likely.|

|May-18-18|| ||Jambow: <Sugardom> No doubt been training with Canelo Alverez from what I hear.|
|May-21-18|| ||Penguincw: And Shankland remains red hot by winning the Capablanca Memorial (2018) by a point and a half.|
|May-21-18|| ||Whitehat1963: He’s turning the yard into his personal Shankland.|
|May-21-18|| ||HeMateMe: Perhaps he purchased the Susan Polgar chess course? The Lev alburt chess course? The Judit Polgar chess course? Bruce Pandolfini's Outrageous Moves?|
|May-22-18|| ||Howard: Wrong on all counts! He obviously must have purchased Bobby Fischer Teaches Chess.|
|May-27-18|| ||offramp: I remember one of the first times I was in France, and I saw a poster for a local theatre's staging of "<Jean Sans Terre> de William Shakespeare".
I was baffled as to which Shakespeare play that was. I knew all the titles...|
Much later, back in London, it dawned on me that Jean Sans Terre is John Without Land or John Lackland, better known as KING JOHN. Yes, Robin Hood's King John.
John Lackland was a descendant of Edmund Longshanks, and when you sellotape those two names together you get SAMUEL SHANKLAND.
And here he is.
|May-27-18|| ||Retireborn: AA Milne wrote a poem about King John. It's funnier than that Shakespeare play.|
|May-27-18|| ||Granny O Doul: So did Edmund Clerihew Bentley. It went like this:|
I doubt if King John
Was a sine qua non.
I could rather imagine it
Of any other Plantagenet.
Personally, I don't think Shakespeare was trying to be funny.

|Jun-08-18|| ||Scuvy: Hopefully, Shankland as current US champion, will be accorded the privilege of 1st board on the 2018 U.S. Olympic Team. I realize he is generally not considered a world-class grandmaster as Caruana, So and Nakamura are. The fact remains: all four players competed and Shankland won the title.|
|Jun-08-18|| ||Petrosianic: Do you want to assign all four boards and reserve through the US Championship results, or only Board 1?|
|Jun-08-18|| ||maelith: Shankland is on fire lately.|
|Jun-09-18|| ||Jambow: cg.com has a serious lag issue probably need to have someone they trust help keep up with things...|
|Jun-10-18|| ||Jambow: Shankland didn't just enter the 2700 club looks like he is setting up shop.|
|Jun-10-18|| ||Bobby Spassky: The ratings are off.

|Jun-10-18|| ||morfishine: Congratulations GM Shankland! Very well done indeed against quite stiff competition! Very impressive!|
|Jun-11-18|| ||kingfu: I see GM Shankland Number 27 in The World. He is playing very well right now to say the least.|
Is he hot or has his game gone to the next level Way Up There??
I checked his web page and other sources. Does anybody know what is next for GM Shankland?
|Jun-11-18|| ||OhioChessFan: A surprising surge at 26 years old. He crossed 2600 at 21, and stayed pretty steadily there for the next 5 years, when he crashed through to 2700.|
|Jun-12-18|| ||Penguincw: Another tournament win for Shankland.
Impressive 9/11 at the American Continental Championship, winning by half a point.
|Jun-17-18|| ||Whitehat1963: Time for some elite-level invites? Or way too soon?|
