In this chess video I am analyzing a game played between Jeffery Xiong vs Samuel Shankland. In Sicilian Dragon Shankland goes for the traditional exchange sacrifice on c3 after which manages to exploit White’s major weaknesses in a sharp, tactical style. Finally he drags his opponent into the endgame where a single bishop is unable to fight against 6 passed pawns.
